On God's Foreign Policy

Ever wonder what trash talk in the OT was like? Well wonder no more. Thinking that "David cannot enter [Jerusalem]" The Jebusites said:

"You shall not come in here, but the blind and lame will turn you away"

-2Sam 5:6

David responded by capturing the stronghold and then naming the city "The City of David." And of course, David became greater "for the LORD God of hosts was with him" (2Sam. 10 c.f. 2Sam. 5:12).
