Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

105:15 Touch not mine anointed. In context, the writer (probably David) is referring to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who were indeed wonderfully protected by God in an alien land, even though they were never physically “anointed,” and although there is no record that God actually spoke these words concerning them. The implication is that God does specially protect all those whom He has called for some special service, as long as they faithfully carry out that mission. There may be an indirect reference to God’s words to Abimelech (Genesis 20:3-7).
