Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

"Yea, the king will hear, to save his handmaid out of the hand of the man that would destroy me and my son from the inheritance of God." אשׁר must be supplied before להשׁמיד: who is to destroy, i.e., who is seeking to destroy (vid., Gesenius, 132, 3). "The inheritance of God" was the nation of Israel (as in 1 Samuel 26:19; cf. Deuteronomy 32:9).
