    Effectiveness in general
  1. on David - desperation/isolation/lack of strength against
  2. on Upright - chewed up/trapped/overwhelmed
  3. on poor/needy - cast out
  4. on land - made barren

    Flourishing as whole even if individuals picked off
  1. like grass/bay tree/turbulent sea

    Why poor/needy targeted?
  1. God's promise?
  2. Upright's responsibility?
  3. Easy riches?
  4. play upon compassions?
