CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
His heart is established - Sustained; upheld. This is the same idea, though somewhat varied in form. The word means to sustain; to support; and the idea is, that there is some basis of support - some strength - which is not his own.

A Psalm of David. The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the defense of my life; Whom shall I dread?
For He has delivered me from all trouble, And my eye has looked with satisfaction upon my enemies.
In God I have put my trust, I shall not be afraid. What can man do to me?
My God in His lovingkindness will meet me; God will let me look triumphantly upon my foes.
"But he who listens to me shall live securely And will be at ease from the dread of evil."
When you lie down, you will not be afraid; When you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
