Treasury of Scripture

Let your hand be on the man of your right hand, on the son of man whom you made strong for yourself.

Psalm 80:15
And the vineyard which thy right hand hath planted, and the branch that thou madest strong for thyself.

Psalm 89:21
With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall strengthen him.

Psalm 110:1
A Psalm of David. The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.









(17) Man of thy right hand.--This is manifestly a continuation of Psalm 80:15, and should follow it:--

"Protect what thy right hand hath planted,

The branch which thou hast made strong for thyself:

Let thy hand be over the man of thy right hand,

Over the son of man whom thou madest strong for thyself."

A fine instance of the mode in which the thought can pass naturally from the figurative to the literal. The man of God's right hand is evidently the man protected by the right hand, but the expression introduces such a tautology that we suspect a misreading.

In the words "son," "son of man," some see a reference to the Messiah. But the parallelism and context show that the poet is thinking of Israel as a community, of which the vine is the emblem.

Verse 17. - Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand. Either upon Israel generally, or upon Ephraim - the northern kingdom - especially. A Judaean poet interceding for the rival state, is touching. Upon the son of man whom thou madest strong for thyself (comp. ver. 15 and the comment).
