What does Psalm 109:31 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 109:31

For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor
Of the Messiah, as in ( Psalms 109:22 ) at whose right hand the Lord was, to guide and direct, help and assist, protect and defend, ( Psalms 16:8 ) , or of his people, who are poor in every sense; but the Lord is on their side, and is a present help in time of trouble, ( Psalms 46:1 Psalms 46:5 ) .

To save him from those that condemn his soul:
the Messiah: from his judges, the high priest and Jewish sanhedrim, and Pilate the Roman governor, who condemned him to death; but he committed his spirit, or soul, to God, who received it, and raised his body from the dead; and would not suffer it to see corruption, as a testimony of his innocence: or the soul of the poor saints, which the Lord saves from the condemnation of sin, Satan, the law, and their own consciences, ( Romans 8:1 Romans 8:33 Romans 8:34 ) .
