Psalm 17

Psalm 17:8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,

Psalm 17:8 — — "Keep me as the apple of the eye" - Scripture References- Note:

Deuteronomy 32:10, "He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye."

Proverbs 7:2, "Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye."

Zechariah 2:8, "For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye."

Psalm 17:9 From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.

Psalm 17:9 — "from my deadly enemies, who compass me about" - Comments- This could be a reference to the events of Saul surrounding David, when he fled from Saul and was encircled by him at one time ( 1 Samuel 23:26).

1 Samuel 23:26, "And Saul went on this side of the mountain, and David and his men on that side of the mountain: and David made haste to get away for fear of Saul; for Saul and his men compassed David and his men round about to take them."

Psalm 17:15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.

Psalm 17:15Comments- Psalm 17:15 is similar to 1 John 3:2, "Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is."
