David prayed for protection from those who conspired against him. He then described their malicious plans against the righteous. He was convinced that God would turn these schemes on the wicked themselves.

It is a song of harvest blessing in celebration of God’s goodness to His people. In this “song” David declared that God, who hears prayers, atones for sin, a provision that results in God’s bounty. David also announced that God uses His supernatural power to help His people. Based on these displays of God’s good pleasure, the songwriter anticipated God’s blessing on the land, which would bring the people prosperity.
