1 Save me, O God, by thy great name,
The Righteous One’s help found in the Lord’s name
Christians have been betrayed in all ages. Even our Lord was betrayed as to His whereabouts by Judas. David was in hiding from Saul, but the Ziphims divulged the knowledge to the king that he was in their region. In fact, they reported twice on his whereabouts, but David was able to make his escape.
David does not attribute his deliverance to his own ingenuity or bravery, but freely acknowledges that the Lord was his helper and deliverer. It is always a cause of praise when God comes to our aid. But the psalm can also reflect the experience of the Lord Jesus, who would not only see the travail of His soul, but God’s desire or judgment upon His enemies.
