    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 91:14

    Because he hath set his love upon me - Here the Most High is introduced as confirming the word of his servant. He has fixed his love - his heart and soul, on me.

    Therefore will I deliver him - I will save him in all troubles, temptations, and evils of every kind.

    I will set him on high - I will place him out of the reach of all his enemies. I will honor and ennoble him, because he hath known my name - because he has loved, honored, and served me, and rendered me that worship which is my due. He has known me to be the God of infinite mercy and love.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 91:14

    Because he hath set his love upon me - Has become attached to me; has united himself with me; is my friend. The Hebrew word expresses the strongest attachment, and is equivalent to our expression - "to fall in love." It refers here to the fact that God is the object of supreme affection on the part of his people; and it also here implies, that this springs from their hearts; that they have seen such beauty in his character, and have such strong desire for him, that their hearts go out in warm affection toward him.

    Therefore will I deliver him - I will save him from trouble and from danger.

    I will set him on high - By acknowledging him as my own, and treating him accordingly.

    Because he hath known my name - He has known me; that is, he understands my true character, and has learned to love me.
