CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Arise, O Lord - Though he knew that God had undertaken his defense, yet he knew that his continued protection depended on his continual prayer and faith. God never ceases to help as long as we pray. When our hands hang down, and we restrain prayer before him, we may then justly fear that our enemies will prevail.
Those blast smitten - That is, Thou wilt smite. He speaks in full confidence of God's interference; and knows as surely that he shall have the victory, as if he had it already. Breaking the jaws and the teeth are expressions which imply, confounding and destroying an adversary; treating him with extreme contempt; using him like a dog, etc.

The Godly are in Some Sense Already Blessed
People open their mouths to jeer at me; they strike my cheek in scorn and unite together against me.
I broke the fangs of the wicked and snatched the victims from their teeth.
Turn, LORD, and deliver me; save me because of your unfailing love.
Arise, LORD, in your anger; rise up against the rage of my enemies. Awake, my God; decree justice.
Rise up, LORD, confront them, bring them down; with your sword rescue me from the wicked.
who saves me from my enemies. You exalted me above my foes; from a violent man you rescued me.
LORD, give victory to the king! Answer us when we call!
