Mix Psalms 57 and 60, and you have this psalm in essence. It is an outburst of praise by David, as he considers the heights of God’s mercy and truth. The heart that has known such, will rise with highest vocal praise, and desire that God would be uplifted and glorified. This is especially manifested when the elect or the beloved know deliverance. Such salvation is effected by God’s right Hand. That could mean His power, for power belongs to Him; or that it results from the ministry of the Man at His right Hand, the Lord Jesus Christ. All enemies will be subdued. Even Philistia is ruled by God under the metaphor of a shoe being cast. This was a similitude of redemption by a goel, or kinsman.
Of ourselves, we can do nothing, but through God we shall do valiantly.
