Psalms 25:1

Unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
] Either "in prayer", as the Chaldee paraphrase adds F19; and denotes sincere, affectionate, hearty prayer to God, a drawing nigh to him with a true heart: for unless the heart is lifted up, the lifting up of the eyes or hands in prayer is of no avail; see (Lamentations 3:41) ; or by way of offering to the Lord, as some Jewish writers F20 interpret it; David not only presented his body in public worship, but his soul also as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which was his reasonable service; or else as a "depositum", which he committed into the hands of God, to be under his care and protection; and then the sense is the same with (Psalms 31:5) F21; the phrase is sometimes used to express earnest and vehement desire after anything; (See Gill on 24:4); and may here intend the very great desire of the psalmist after communion with God; which is elsewhere by him expressed by panting after him, and by thirsting for him in a dry and thirsty land, (Psalms 42:1) (63:1) ; the desires of his soul were not to vain things, the vanities and idols of the Gentiles, but to God only, and to the remembrance of his name.
