The Righteous One’s Safety Amid Foes
This is the first psalm directly named as David’s, which he wrote when he fled from his son, Absalom. It is to be noted that although David was in great straits and stress, yet the composition depicts that he was given great calm and peace of mind after his initial fears and anxieties. This was because he looked to God and placed his confidence in Him, (vv. 3&4). We ought to remember this psalm when we, too, are surrounded by difficulties.
