Parallel Commentaries
Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary

24:8-15 David was falsely charged with seeking Saul's hurt; he shows Saul that God's providence had given him opportunity to do it. And it was upon a good principle that he refused to do it. He declares his fixed resolution never to be his own avenger. If men wrong us, God will right us, at farthest, in the judgment of the great day.

Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible

The Lord therefore be Judge, and judge between me and thee,.... Signifying he did not desire to be judge in his own cause, but leave it with God to determine it for him in his providence:

and see, and plead my cause; look with pity upon him, take his cause in his hand, plead it, and do him justice:

and deliver me out of thine hand: which was a prayer of faith, believing he would do it in due time, see Psalm 7:6.
