20:13 I will give it into your hand this day. This is the form of assurance given before battles when the Lord is about to fight on Israel’s side (Josh. 6:2, 16; 8:1, 18; Judg. 7:2; 18:10; 2 Chr. 13:16; 16:8). God defends the cause of His people against oppressors and enemies (Ex. 15:1–21; Judg. 5; Hab. 3:3–19; Rev. 18).
