(18) He hath delivered.--The Targum rightly makes this the petition just mentioned, "Deliver," &c

(18) From the battle.--The reading of the LXX. is preferable, "from these drawing near to me."

For there were many with me.--This is only intelligible if we insert the word fighting. "For there were many fighting with me," i.e., "against me." But the text seems corrupt.

Verse 18. - He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me. Once mere "the preterite of prophetic certainty." David sees his deliverance effected. He beholds the coming battle (2 Samuel 17:11; 2 Samuel 18:6-8). He sees that there are many with him; i.e. "many that contend with him;" but his courage does not fail - he is assured of being "delivered" and re-established in his kingdom "in peace."
