CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
54:3 Strangers - The Zephites, whom, though Israelites, he calls strangers in regard of their barbarous and perfidious carriage.
1 Samuel 20:1
David now fled from Naioth in Ramah and found Jonathan. "What have I done?" he exclaimed. "What is my crime? How have I offended your father that he is so determined to kill me?"
1 Samuel 25:29
"Even when you are chased by those who seek to kill you, your life is safe in the care of the LORD your God, secure in his treasure pouch! But the lives of your enemies will disappear like stones shot from a sling!
and rescues me from my enemies. You hold me safe beyond the reach of my enemies; you save me from violent opponents.
For the choir director: A psalm of David, the servant of the L Sin whispers to the wicked, deep within their hearts. They have no fear of God at all.
Meanwhile, my enemies lay traps to kill me. Those who wish me harm make plans to ruin me. All day long they plan their treachery.
May those who try to destroy me be humiliated and put to shame. May those who take delight in my trouble be turned back in disgrace.
But those plotting to destroy me will come to ruin. They will go down into the depths of the earth.
