Artist's Description

Who among us has not been in this situation?

Who has not felt themselves dwelling among the tents of the wicked? In a strange land. Surrounded by enmity to which there is seemingly no response?

David the mighty king and quintessential warrior knew this so well. And while his fame lay in his mastery of the slingshot and the sword, he knew the most effective, and sometimes the only truly effective weapons are spiritual:

“I call on the Lord in my distress,
and He answers me.
Save me, Lord,
from lying lips
and from deceitful tongues.
What will he do to you,
and what more besides,
you deceitful tongue?
He will punish you with a warrior’s sharp arrows,
with burning coals of the broom bush.
Woe to me that I dwell in Meshek,
that I live among the tents of Kedar!
Too long have I lived
among those who hate peace.
I am for peace;
but when I speak, they are for war.”

Psalm 120.

Meshek – a son of Japheth, the people descended from him, and their land (Russia – Scythia).
Kedar – a son of Ishmael, the people descended from him, and their land (Arabian Desert).
