|For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory. |
|For the LORD your God is he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you. |
|for the LORD your God is the one who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you. |
|Deuteronomy 20:4 |
Before the army went into battle, the priest was to exhort the soldiers. In modern terminology, these were the chaplains who spoke to the men before they faced possible death. These priests were called the "anointed of the battle." They gave the army a threefold assurance: (1) the Lord goeth with you; (2) He will fight for you; and (3) He will save you.
