CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
I will say of the Lord - I, the psalmist; I will take this to myself; I will endeavor to secure this blessedness; I will thus abide with God.

O my God, in You I trust, Do not let me be ashamed; Do not let my enemies exult over me.
For You are my rock and my fortress; For Your name's sake You will lead me and guide me.
In God, whose word I praise, In God I have put my trust; I shall not be afraid. What can mere man do to me?
For you have made the LORD, my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place.
But the LORD has been my stronghold, And my God the rock of my refuge.
