What does Psalm 86:13 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 86:13

For great is thy mercy toward me
Both in things temporal and spiritual; an instance of which follows:

and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell;
from a very distressed and disconsolate condition, being almost in despair, under a deep sense of sin, and a fearful apprehension of the wrath of God, as, particularly, when he was charged by Nathan; or from hell itself, and the severest punishment in it; from the second and eternal death, which every man is deserving of, and are only delivered from by the grace of God, and blood of Christ: this shows the sense the psalmist had of the just demerit of sin, and his thankfulness for deliverance from it; see ( Psalms 56:13 ) . Kimchi interprets it of the grave; but says, there are some that interpret it of the judgment, or condemnation of hell: such who have escaped great dangers in long and perilous journeys, or have been delivered from threatening diseases, are said to be saved from hell F18.
