In Psalm 31, David commits his spirit into the hands of the faithful God, the God who redeems. We remember these words coming from the lips of Jesus on the cross, but our worshipful amazement at such faith is immediately jarred against David’s next statement, a pronouncement of hatred against those who pay regard to worthless idols. But David’s hatred is set against the backdrop of the love and favor of God for His people – to pay regard to idols means disregarding the true and living God, ignoring His works, denying His power and love, casting doubt on His existence and ability to save. David’s desire that God be rightly regarded leads him to hate all those who would rob God of His rightful glory by serving worthless idols. We too need to cultivate this holy jealousy in worship.
