Verse of the Day (October 17, 2020) #BMSeminary – Here David described a person who fears the Lord: he is one in whom the Lord confides by revealing His covenant to him (v. 14) and instructing him (v. 12b; cf. vv. 4-5, 8-9). These statements remind the reader of the Wisdom literature, especially Proverbs. A person who fears the Lord (Prov. 1:7; 9:10; 15:33; 31:30) is instructed by the Lord’s Word. The psalm concludes with a prayer for the Lord’s gracious deliverance. Beginning with his own affirmation that he trusts the Lord for deliverance (v. 15), the psalmist called on God to forgive (v. 18; cf. vv. 6-7, 11) his afflicted soul and deliver him from the distress caused by his cruel enemies (v. 18). Again he asked that in being rescued he not be put to shame (cf. v. 20), and he affirmed his hope in God (v. 21; cf. vv. 3, 5; hope in the Lord is mentioned more than two dozen times in the Pss.). The last request was for deliverance of Israel … from her troubles (v. 22). [Bible Knowledge Commentary]
