Bridgeway Bible Commentary - Psalms 21:1-13

Psalms 20-21 Before and after battleThese two psalms belong together as a pair. The former is a prayer for the king before he leads the people in battle; the latter, a thanksgiving after victory.Addressing the king, the people call down God’s power and protection upon him (20:1-2).

Prevenient Grace Psalms 21:2-3 This Psalm is a battle song, a thanksgiving after the battle. It is full of the glow of triumph, the exultation of victory. I. There has been a change of meaning in the word prevent since our English translation; or rather, as so often happens in the history of words, the meaning has taken on a different colour.
