33:18 hope. Deliverance from evil does not come by military power (“the multitude of an host,” Psalm 33:16), manpower (“much strength,” Psalm 33:16), or horsepower (“a horse is a vain thing,” Psalm 33:17), but spiritual power.
Psalm 34 (superscript). The actual name of the Philistine king who drove David away at the time of his feigned madness was Achish (I Samuel 21:10-15). However, Abimelech was a generic title of Philistine kings. See Genesis 20:2 and Genesis 26:1, with footnote on Genesis 20:2.
