Psalms 18:20-29 (ANIV)
20 The Lord has dealt with me according to my righteousness;
according to the cleanness of my hands he has rewarded me.
21 For I have kept the ways of the Lord;
I have not done evil by turning from my God.
22 All his laws are before me;
I have not turned away from his decrees.
23 I have been blameless before him
and have kept myself from sin.
24 The Lord has rewarded me according to my righteousness,
according to the cleanness of my hands in his sight.
25 To the faithful you show yourself faithful,
to the blameless you show yourself blameless,
26 to the pure you show yourself pure,
but to the crooked you show yourself shrewd.
27 You save the humble
but bring low those whose eyes are haughty.
28 You, O Lord, keep my lamp burning;
my God turns my darkness into light.
29 With your help I can advance against a troop; [4]
with my God I can scale a wall.

[4]
Or, can run through a barricade.

DRAWING NOTES:

TIME OF DAY:
Unspecified in Bible Text. Daytime.

LIGHTING NOTES:
Weak sunlight from above and left illuminates this scene. Shadows are cast to the right of figures and objects.

CHARACTERS PRESENT:
An un-named soldier climbing up a rope; “scaling a wall” (see verse 29).
Various warriors in a battle at the base of the wall.

RESEARCH/ADDITIONAL NOTES:
Psalm 18 is an example of a psalm of Thanksgiving, which describe a situation of distress & how God delivered the psalmist.

This scene is based on verse 29, where the psalmist writes, “With your help [i.e. God’s] I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall.” I haven’t drawn anyone scaling a wall on a rope in a Bible Cartoon before, so that was novel to do!
