CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
With whom my hand shall be established - Septuagint: "My hand shall aid him." Luther; "My hand shall hold him." DeWette; "With him my hand shall be continually." Professor Alexander; "Shall ever be present." The idea is, that God would always defend or protect him. He would not merely interpose at times, or at intervals, but he would be his constant protector. His hand would be permanently, or constantly, extended for his aid - as if it were a part of David's own person, or were his own hand, to be used as he pleased.

It will be no less surely employed in their defense in the hand of God than if it were in their own hand. It will be more wisely employed by him in their behalf than it would be by themselves.

The God who girds me with strength And makes my way blameless?
You have also given me the shield of Your salvation, And Your right hand upholds me; And Your gentleness makes me great.
Let Your hand be upon the man of Your right hand, Upon the son of man whom You made strong for Yourself.
