In this scene, the points of view of the various speakers battle for control of the narrative, attempting in turn to align their perspective with some aspect of what has been revealed earlier about Yahweh in the larger biblical story.

Shimei, relative of the dead King Saul, paints David as a murderer and under a divine curse. Shimei presents himself as Gods instrument of truth and vengeance.
