Arthur Peake's Commentary on the Bible
Psalms 20



Verses 1-9

XX. A prayer for deliverance from national disaster, changing (probably after the sacrifice has been offered) into confidence at Psalms 20:6; "Now know I," etc. The mention of a king or "anointed one" would seem to place the Ps. in pre-exilic times, unless we are prepared to carry it down to the reign of Aristobulus I (p. 608), the first of the Maccabees who took the royal title (105 B.C.). Certainly the religious tone is in favour of a Maccabean date.

Psalms 20:9. Follow mg.
