Ge 15:1; De 33:29; 1Sa 2:10; 2Sa 23:1; 2Ch 6:42; Ps 2:2,6; Ps 84:11; Ps 89:20; Ps 98:1; Ac 4:27

NET © Notes

tn The phrase “our shield” refers metaphorically to the Davidic king, who, as God’s vice-regent, was the human protector of the people. Note the parallelism with “your anointed one” here and with “our king” in Ps 89:18.

tn Heb “look [on] the face of your anointed one.” The Hebrew phrase מְשִׁיחֶךָ (mÿshikhekha, “your anointed one”) refers here to the Davidic king (see Pss 2:2; 18:50; 20:6; 28:8; 89:38, 51; 132:10, 17).
