    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 31:8

    Thou hast set my foot in a large room - Many hair-breadth escapes David had for his life; at that time especially when, playing before Saul, the furious king took a spear and endeavored to pierce him through the body, but he escaped and got to the deserts. Here God, who had saved his life, set his feet in a large room. The seventh and eighth verses speak of what God had done previously for him.

    And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy - Hast not delivered me into his hand, or into his power. See the margin 1 Samuel 17:46; 1 Samuel 24:18; 1 Samuel 26:8.

    Thou hast set my feet in a large room - In a large place. Thou hast made me free, or set me at liberty. See Psalm 4:1, note; Psalm 18:19, note; Psalm 18:36, note.
