The Victory is the Lord's
"For surely your enemies, O Lord, surely your enemies will perish; all evildoers will be scattered."
Psalm 92:9
"You have exalted my horn like that of a wild ox; fine oils have been poured upon me."
Psalm 92:10
My eyes have seen the defeat of my adversaries; my ears have heard the rout of my wicked foes."
Psalm 92:11
Verse 9: "For surely your enemies, O Lord, surely your enemies will perish; all evildoers will be scattered.""

Here in verse 9 we now have the reason for the glorious outburst in verse 8, "You, O Lord, are exalted forever."

The reason stated here in verse 9 is: "For surely your enemies, O Lord, surely your enemies will perish; all evildoers will be scattered."

Perowne says "scattered" is literally translated: "SHALL MELT AWAY...'shall separate themselves, disperse,' breaking up as it were without the application of any external force."

Verse 10: "You have exalted my horn like that of a wild ox; fine oils have been poured upon me."

The word "You" takes us back to verse 8: "But you, O Lord, are exalted forever." Now in verse 10 we have: "You have exalted my horn like that of a wild ox."

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says: "An animal horn pictures strength...and the 'oil' represents festivity and restoration of vitality. So because God is exalted ... He will likewise bless His people. Moreover, the righteous will see the complete destruction of the wicked..." (861)

Spurgeon said: "...I think David meant that he should also have new cause for delight. Anointing with oil was intended to give pleasure. The element of joy in religion is looked upon with indifference by some, but they are unwise. There are some now-a-days who would like to strike out everything from mortal life which gives pleasure."

Verse 11: "My eyes have seen the defeat of my adversaries; my ears have heard the rout of my wicked foes."

The reason he speaks with such a positive tone is because what his "eyes have seen" and his "ears have hears."

"[His] eyes have seen defeat of [his] adversaries; [his] ears have heard the rout of [his] wicked foes."

It's like he is going from victory unto victory and the Lord is leading him onward.

A great worship song to sing as we conclude this study is "Jesus Is Lord of All":
All my tomorrows, all my past - Jesus is Lord of all.
I've quit my struggles, contentment at last!
Jesus is Lord of all.

All of my conflicts, all my thoughts - Jesus is Lord of all.
His love wins the battles I could not have fought;
Jesus is Lord of all.

All of my longings, all my dreams - Jesus is Lord of all.
All of my failures His power redeems:
Jesus is Lord of all.

King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Jesus is Lord of all;
All my possessions and all my life,
Jesus is Lord of all.
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
