17 Let your hand rest on the man at your right hand, the son of man you have raised up for yourself.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Psalm 80:17

Commentary on Psalm 80:17-19

(Read Psalm 80:17-19)

The Messiah, the Protector and Saviour of the church, is the Man of God's right hand; he is the Arm of the Lord, for all power is given to him. In him is our strength, by which we are enabled to persevere to the end. The vine, therefore, cannot be ruined, nor can any fruitful branch perish; but the unfruitful will be cut off and cast into the fire. The end of our redemption is, that we should serve Him who hath redeemed us, and not go back to our old sins.
