View Psalms 57 in the note window.

David here begins with prayer and complaint, tho' not as without hope, ver. 1 - 6. He concludes with joy and praise, ver. 7 - 11. To the chief musician Al - taschith, Michtam of David, when he fled from Saul in the cave.

Title of the psalm. Al - taschith - The word signifies, destroy not. Which some think to be a preface, containing the sum of the psalm. The cave - Either

  1. That of Adullam, (1Sa 22:1), or
  2. That of Engedi, (1Sa 24:1).

3: Send forth - Will discover them, by affording his gracious help in pursuance of his promises.

4: Lions - Fierce and bloody men. I lie - I have my abode. On fire - From hell. Who are mere fire - brands, breathing out wrath and threatenings, and incensing Saul against me.

5: Excited - Glorify thy power, and goodness, and justice, and faithfulness, by my deliverance. Above, &c. - To the highest degree possible.

7: Fixed - In a stedfast belief of thy promises.

8: My glory - My tongue, the instrument of singing. Awake - I will employ all the powers of my soul and body.

9: The people - Among the Israelites, and among the Heathens, as I shall have occasion.
