Psalms 108:6

 

 

That Your beloved may be delivered, Save with Your right hand, and answer me!

Albert Barnes' Notes on the Whole Bible

That thy beloved may be delivered - The word rendered “beloved,” and the verb rendered “may be delivered,” are both in the plural number, showing that it is not an individual that is referred to, but that the people of God are intended. This is taken without any alteration from Psalm 60:5. In that psalm the prayer for deliverance is grounded on the afflictions of the people, and the fact that God had given them “a banner that it might be displayed because of the truth,” - or, in the cause of truth. See the notes at that psalm. In the psalm before us, while the prayer for deliverance is the same, the reason for that prayer is different. It is that God is exalted; that his mercy is above the heavens; that his glory is above all the earth, and that he is thus exalted that he may interpose and save his people.

Save with thy right hand, and answer me - The Hebrew here is the same as in Psalm 60:5, where it is rendered “and hear me.”

George Haydock's Catholic Bible Commentary

Set thou the sinner over him, &c. Give to the devil, that arch-sinner, power over him: let him enter into him, and possess him. The imprecations contained in the thirty verses of this psalm, are opposed to the thirty pieces of silver for which Judas betrayed our Lord: and are to be taken as prophetic denunciations of the evils that should befall the traitor, and his accomplices, the Jews; and not properly as curses. (Challoner) --- The devil entered into Judas, (John xiii. 2.; Calmet) who hung himself in despair. (Worthington) --- The Jews were abandoned over to cruel masters, as Doeg and Achitophel presently perished, Psalm li. 5. It was customary at trials, for a satan, or "adversary," to be stationed at the right hand of the accused, Zacharias iii. 1. (Calmet)

Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible - Unabridged

That thy beloved may be delivered: save with thy right hand, and answer me.

That thy beloved may be delivered: Save ... The Hebrew, 'thy beloved ones' ( diydeykaa (Hebrew #3039)), alludes to David's name, meaning beloved. He and his people are beloved of God, and it is God's glory to save His beloved ones.

And answer me. The Hebrew text in Psalms 60:5 reads 'us,' which is the probable reading, as 'us' would naturally be used as a designed variation by David, and transcribers would alter it to conform it to our passage, 'Hear,' or "answer me." It is Israel that speaks.
