CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
But my horn shalt thou exalt - The horn is a symbol of strength or power (see the notes at Psalm 18:2); and the meaning here is, that, while the wicked would be cut off, he would be prospered; that is, he had such confidence that he was the friend of God, that he believed God would honor him and exalt him. The psalmist here speaks of himself not so much with reference to his own particular case, but as the representative of the righteous. The idea is, that God will thus exalt "a righteous man."
I shall be anointed with fresh oil - Oil pure and sweet; not old and rancid. That is, he would be made happy, cheerful, bright, and prosperous. Anointing with oil in the East was the symbol of all this, or was equivalent to what we mean by putting on festive apparel - holiday apparel. Compare the notes at Psalm 23:5.

1 Samuel 2:1
Then Hannah prayed and said, "My heart exults in the LORD; My horn is exalted in the LORD, My mouth speaks boldly against my enemies, Because I rejoice in Your salvation.
"Will the wild ox consent to serve you, Or will he spend the night at your manger?
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
And all the horns of the wicked He will cut off, But the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.
For You are the glory of their strength, And by Your favor our horn is exalted.
And wine which makes man's heart glad, So that he may make his face glisten with oil, And food which sustains man's heart.
