Deliver me from the oppression of man
Of any man, of proud and haughty men, as in ( Psalms 119:122 ) ; the psalmist always desired rather to fall into the hands of God than into the hands of wicked men, whose tender mercies are cruel. Some render it, "from the oppression of Adam", as Jarchi observes; and Arama interprets it of the sin of Adam, and as a prayer to be delivered or redeemed from it; as the Lord's people are by the blood of Christ: Jarchi understands it of the evil imagination or corruption of nature, which oppresses men; which sense Arama also makes mention of;
so will I keep thy precepts:
being delivered out of the hands of wicked men, and free from their snares and temptations; see ( Psalms 119:115 ) ( Luke 1:74 Luke 1:75 ) .
