Waiting upon God is the theme of this Psalm with the first two verses repeated in (v.5,6) "Truly my soul waits upon God: from Him comes my salvation. He only is my Rock and my Salvation; He is my Defense; I shall not be greatly moved."
David's patience is demonstrated here knowing that God will indeed intervene, rescue and defend him from the hand of his enemies. The three titles he gives immediately point us to the Lord Jesus Christ for He is the Rock spoken of here. (I Corinthians 10:4) David will not be shaken by their assault which is described in (v.3,4)
"How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? Ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence. They only consult to cast him down form his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah."
Wicked devices, destructive plans, deception and devious hypocrisy are the tools utilized by these doomed foes of God. Their untimely death is assured being likened to the collapse of familiar structures that are dangerously defective and are about to fall to their ruin!
In (v.5,6) the repetition brings about the strong confidence David patiently displays as he waits on the LORD to bring about His desired end. He does not look to man or himself for the answer to the enemies onslaught, but instead firmly states his position knowing that the LORD will indeed come through just as He has done in the past.
