“This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand”: David is expressing his firm belief and prophetic confidence that God will give him victory over Goliath.

“and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee”: Here, David is declaring his intent to not only defeat Goliath but also to kill him and decapitate him as a sign of complete victory.

“and I will give the carcasses of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth”: This is a vivid description of the defeat of the Philistine army, indicating that they will be slain and their bodies will be left for scavengers, which was a common fate for the defeated in ancient battles.

“that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel”: The ultimate purpose of this victory, according to David, is to demonstrate to all onlookers, far and wide, that God is with Israel and that His power is supreme over any earthly force or enemy.

In this verse, we see a young David filled with faith, not deterred by the size or strength of his adversary, but rather, he is confident in the Lord's deliverance. This confidence is not rooted in his own ability, but in his unwavering faith in God's power to save and His sovereignty over Israel.

“that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that thou art the LORD God, even thou only”: Hezekiah’s request is not just for the salvation of his own kingdom, but also for a demonstration of God’s uniqueness and sovereignty to all nations.

In this verse, King Hezekiah acknowledges the dire situation of his people and seeks God's deliverance not merely for their sake but for the glory of God to be known worldwide. It is a recognition that God's deliverance will serve as a testament to His unrivaled power and divine authority over all kingdoms on earth.

“And I will sanctify my great name”: Here, sanctify means to set apart or declare as holy. God is speaking about making His name—His character and reputation—holy and respected after it has been dishonored.

“which was profaned among the heathen”: Profaned means to treat something sacred with disrespect. The heathen is a term used to refer to nations or people who do not acknowledge the God of Israel. So, God’s name was disrespected among other nations.

“and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD”: The heathen or other nations will recognize God’s sovereignty and power.

“saith the Lord GOD”: This reaffirms that these are the words and intentions of God Himself.

“and that they, even the house of Israel, are my people”: God is affirming His special relationship with Israel. The phrase “house of Israel” refers to the descendants of Jacob, also known as Israel, and signifies the entire community of God’s chosen people.

“saith the Lord GOD”: This confirms the authority behind the promise. When God speaks, it carries the weight of absolute truth and certainty. It’s not just a statement; it’s a decree from the sovereign LORD.

“That they may see, and know”: This suggests a clear demonstration of God’s power, intended to be visible and recognizable to all.

“and consider, and understand together”: God’s actions are not just to be observed; they are to be thoughtfully contemplated and understood as a community, emphasizing collective insight.

“that the hand of the LORD hath done this”: It’s a figurative way of saying God’s power and direct action are responsible for what has occurred, not chance or human intervention.
