“I will fervently thank the Lord with my mouth; I will praise Him in the presence of many. For He stands at the right hand of the needy to save him from those who would condemn him.”
Psalm 109 was written by David. The psalm is almost exclusively reserved for asking God to deal with David’s enemies, those that were persecuting and chasing him, trying to kill him. In vss 30-31, he promises God that he will fervantly thank Him. Fervantly means passionately and repeatedly. David promises to do this on the presence of many people. This kind of offering was called a “towdah”. It was a thanksgiving to God after being rescued from impossible curcumstances. It was given before the congregation as a condition made to God, asking for God rescue them. David, states his difficulties in vss 1-29. He promises to fulfil his vow in vs 30. He gives his reason for doing this in vs 31.
“For He stands at the right hand of the needy to save him from those who would condemn him.”
David was the “needy” one–he was the one needing to be rescued!
David’s confidence was in God because God had saved him over and over.
What do you need to be rescued from today? Depeession? Debt? Additions? Whatever it is, “He stands by to help those in need to save them”! (vs31) He can save you today.
Think about it!
