    Definitions for Psalms 18:48

    Yea - Yes; certainly.

    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 18:48

    He delivereth me - That is, he hath delivered me, and continues to deliver me, from all that rise up against me.

    The violent man - Saul; this applies particularly to him.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 18:48

    He delivereth me from mine enemies - From all my foes.

    Yea, thou liftest me up above those that rise up against me - So that I triumph over them. Instead of being subdued by them, and trampled under their feet, I am exalted, and they are humbled.

    Thou hast delivered me from the violent man - Margin, as in Hebrew, man of violence; the man characterized by injustice and wrong; the man who endeavored to overcome and subdue me by force and arms. There is probably a special allusion here by the psalmist to Saul as his great enemy, but perhaps he had also in his eye others of the same kind, and the meaning may be that he had been delivered from all of that class of people.
