EXPOSITION

Verse 20. O keep my soul out of evil, and deliver me when I fall into it. This is another version of the prayer, "Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil." Let me not be ashamed. This is the one fear which like a ghost haunted the psalmist's mind. He trembled lest his faith should become the subject of ridicule through the extremity of his affliction. Noble hearts can brook anything but shame. David was of such a chivalrous spirit, that he could endure any torment rather than be put to dishonour. For I put my trust in thee. And therefore the name of God would be compromised if his servants were deserted; this the believing heart can by no means endure.

 

EXPLANATORY NOTES AND QUAINT SAYINGS

Verse 19-20. -- Consider mine enemies ... O keep my soul and deliver me. See Psalms on "Psalms 25:19" for further information.

Verse 20. Let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee. When David reaches verse 20, we are reminded of Coriolanus betaking himself to the hall of Attius Tullus, and sitting as a helpless stranger there, claiming the king's hospitality, though aware of his having deserved to die at his hands. The psalmist throws himself on the compassion of an injured God with similar feelings; "I trust in thee!" Andrew A. Bonar.

 

HINTS FOR PASTORS AND LAYPERSONS

Verse 20. Soul preservation.

  1. Its twofold character, "Keep," and "deliver."
  2. Its dreadful alternative, "Let me not be ashamed."
  3. Its effectual guarantee, "I put my trust in thee."

Verse 20. A superhuman keeping, a natural fear, a spiritual trust.
