2 He said: "The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; 3 my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield[1] and the horn[2] of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior- from violent people you save me.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on 2 Samuel 22:2-3

Chapter Contents

David's psalm of thanksgiving.

This chapter is a psalm of praise; we find it afterwards nearly as 2 Timothy 4:18. Those who receive signal mercies from God, ought to give him the glory. In the day that God delivered David, he sang this song. While the mercy is fresh, and we are most affected with it, let the thank-offering be brought, to be kindled with the fire of that affection. All his joys and hopes close, as all our hopes should do, in the great Redeemer.
