The Lord render to every man his righteousness, and his
Or recompense every man that deals justly and faithfully with others, as he had done with Saul; or the Lord, who is just and faithful to his promises, reward the men that act the good and upright part; and this was a prayer of faith; for David doubted not that, though Saul might fail, yet God could not;
for the Lord delivered thee into [my] hand this day;
or, "into an hand"
but I would not stretch forth my hand against the Lord's anointed;
nor suffer another to stretch forth his hand against him; so careful and tender was he of his life.
F24 (dyb) "in manum", Pagninus, Montanus.
