Treasury of Scripture

My times are in your hand: deliver me from the hand of my enemies, and from them that persecute me.

My times

Psalm 116:15
Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.

1 Samuel 26:10
David said furthermore, As the LORD liveth, the LORD shall smite him; or his day shall come to die; or he shall descend into battle, and perish.

2 Samuel 7:12
And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom.

deliver

Psalm 17:8,9,13
Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings, …

Psalm 71:10-12
For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together, …

Psalm 142:6
Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low: deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I.









(15) My times are in thy hand--i.e., the vicissitudes of human life (LXX. and Vulg. have "my destinies") are under Divine control, so that the machinations of the foe cannot prevail against one whom God intends to deliver. For the expression comp. 1Chronicles 29:30, "the times that went over him," Isaiah 33:6.

The sense of security in this trusting phrase may be contrasted with the feeling of danger in another Hebrew phrase, "my soul is continually in my hand," Psalm 119:109.

Verse 15. - My times are in thy hand. "My times," i.e. "all the varied events, happy or sad, which make up the parti-coloured web of life" (Kay). Not one of them but is shaped by thee and ordered by thee. Deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me (camp. vers. 1, 2, 4). The great need under existing circumstances was deliverance. Absalom was looked for daily to "pass over Jordan, and all the men of Israel with him" (2 Samuel 17:24). A battle was imminent. If the day went against David, and his army was defeated, he would necessarily fall into the hands of his "enemies" and "persecutors," in which case he could not hope that they would spare his life (2 Samuel 17:2, 12).
