CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
So that we may boldly say - Without any hesitation or doubt, In all times of perplexity and threatening want; in all times when we scarcely know whence the supplies for our necessities are to come, we may put our trust in God, and be assured that he will not leave us to suffer. In the facts which occur under the providential dealings, there is a ground for confidence on this subject which is not always exercised even by good people.

Thus he said to him, "Do not be afraid, because the hand of Saul my father will not find you, and you will be king over Israel and I will be next to you; and Saul my father knows that also."
In God, whose word I praise, In God I have put my trust; I shall not be afraid. What can mere man do to me?
The LORD is for me; I will not fear; What can man do to me?
