It appears by the title that this psalm was penned
with a particular reference to the malicious imputations that David
was unjustly laid under by some of his enemies. Being thus wronged,
I. He applies to God for favour, ver.
1, 2. II. He appeals to God concerning his innocency as
to those things whereof he was accused, ver. 3-5. III. He prays to God to plead his
cause and judge for him against his persecutors, ver. 6-9. IV. He expresses his confidence in
God that he would do so, and would return the mischief upon the
head of those that designed it against him, ver. 10-16. V. He promises to give God the
glory of his deliverance, ver.
17. In this David was a type of Christ, who was himself,
and still is in his members, thus injured, but will certainly be
righted at last.
