CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
The God of my mercy shall prevent me - Or rather, "My God - his mercy shall prevent me." This is in accordance with the present reading of the Hebrew text, and is probably correct. The psalmist looks to God as his God, and then the feeling at once springs up that his mercy - favor - his loving-kindness - "would" "prevent" him. On the word "prevent" see the notes at Psalm 21:3; compare Psalm 17:13; Psalm 18:5. The meaning here is, that God would "go before him," or would "anticipate" his necessities.
God shall let me see my desire upon mine enemies - That is, He will let me see them discomfited, and disappointed in their plans. This is equivalent to saying that God would give him the victory, or would not suffer them to triumph over him. See the notes at Psalm 54:7.

For whoso fears to depart from Him asks and says, "Let there not come to me foot of pride."  Go on in the way of loftiness with the foot of lowliness; Himself lifteth up such as follow in lowly wise, …

Introduction. Chapter i. --The Life and Writings of St. Hilary of Poitiers.
Thus the LORD saved Israel that day from the hand of the Egyptians, and Israel saw the Egyptians dead on the seashore.
For You meet him with the blessings of good things; You set a crown of fine gold on his head.
For He has delivered me from all trouble, And my eye has looked with satisfaction upon my enemies.
O my strength, I will sing praises to You; For God is my stronghold, the God who shows me lovingkindness.
His heart is upheld, he will not fear, Until he looks with satisfaction on his adversaries.
The LORD is for me among those who help me; Therefore I will look with satisfaction on those who hate me.
Yet, O LORD of hosts, You who test the righteous, Who see the mind and the heart; Let me see Your vengeance on them; For to You I have set forth my cause.
