It seems that David is under the gun. He is torn with the love he has for God and the desire to be with Him, or to face life 's incredible struggles. The apostle Paul had that struggle. In Philippians 1:23, he wrote, But I am hard pressed between the two. My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better. David goes on to say, but I hope in Thy word. The believer in God knows the end of it all. He has read the end of the Book! It is God 's word and His promises that have sustained men even to be burned alive, that could simply have been avoided by renouncing their faith in God. Paul in that same chapter said, Philippians 4:21 for me to live is Christ and to die is gain.
