When King David went out to battle against the enemies of Israel, he did so with a heart set on winning the battle as an emissary of God. He prayed passionately and his heart was filled with an intense love for God, willing to do whatever was needed and whatever was right. Although the words “shield of David”, best recognized as the “Star of David” are never mentioned in the Bible directly, the words in this Biblical quote give direct inference to God being the shield and protector of Israel. Further, King David stated that the battle being fought was not won by swords and spears, but through God’s might, proving the Almighty as the true strength and protection for Israel.
