Enemies Under Feet


In the past, there was a practice of the conquerors placing their feet upon the neck or body of their defeated enemies. Joshua 10:16- 27 is an example. The Amorite kings were hiding in a cave at Makkedah while the Israelites conquered their nation. When the commanders of Joshua’s army brought these kings of Jerusalem, Hebron, Jarmuth, Lachish, and Eglon to Joshua, he asked the commanders to put their feet on the necks of the kings while all army of Israel was present. It was a sign of the victory of Israel over those kings. So also, the Spirit inspired David to say that one day the Messiah will bring spiritual enemies under his feet.
