and cause me to escape;
present danger, and out of the hands of enemies, as well as wrath to come, and eternal death; which nothing but the righteousness of God can deliver from, or cause to escape;
incline thine ear unto me; or "bow it"; (See Gill on Psalms 31:2);
and save me;
out of all troubles and afflictions, and from wicked and unreasonable men.
F17 (Ktqdub) "propter justitiam tuam", Pagninus, Piscator; so Schmidt.
