- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
16:8 I have set - I have always presented him to my mind, as my witness and judge, as my patron and protector. Hitherto David seems to have spoken with respect to himself, but now he is transported by the spirit of prophecy, and carried above himself, to speak as a type of Christ, in whom this and the following verses were truly accomplished. Christ as man did always set his father's will and glory before him. Right - hand - To strengthen, protect, assist, and comfort me: as this assistance of God was necessary to Christ as man. Moved - Though the archers shoot grievously at me, and both men and devils seek my destruction, and God sets himself against me as an enemy, yet I am assured he will deliver me out of all my distresses.

I looked this verse up because of an old blues song I shall not be moved and knew it must have had a basis in scripture It makes the whole song so much better now that I knew where it came from As a new Christian I love this song so much more because I will not be moved Now I really know what the song means

"Set" the Lord implies that we always put God
first place in all we do and in all our considerations of what to do. He is our right hand of strength and when "all around our soul gives way, God is truly our Hope and Stay"

Our God is everywhere,
we need to work according to his will,
that is, having a right standing with him, then we can stand firm against the wiles of the devil.

Psalms 16 is a verse that contains a prophetic mystery.... I've always put the Lord ahead in everything that I committ
