“For not by their sword did they inherit the land, neither did their arm save them, but Your right hand and Your arm and the light of Your countenance, for You favored them (Psalms 44:4).” I was interested in this verse because to me it seems to be all about perspective. As most of us have heard before, history is written by the winners. Therefore, it’s subjective whether or not the victories of the winners are theirs alone, or if they can be attributed to some outside forces. In this case, we hear that it was God’s doing, rather than the actions of human beings themselves, that caused certain victories. But who decided to lay it out that way? I’d imagine that if the victors of this particular battle were the writers, they’d give more credit to their own strength. But instead, it’s God’s victory.
