Psalm 136:19-20

Sihon king of the Amorites
His love endures forever.

and Og king of Bashan—
His love endures forever.
(NIV)
These two kings opposed the children of Israel as they were trying to enter into the Promised Land. They came out in all of their splendor, with their entire army, to stand against God's plan. Needless to say, it was a disaster for them.

I think that it could best be understood in the final verse of Numbers 21,
So they struck him down, together with his sons and his whole army, leaving them no survivors. And they took possession of his land.
(NIV)
This is how our loving God will deal with all those "kings" in our life that oppose Him and stand in His way. He will prevail as the one and only Lord of our lives.
