Verse 16
Avenger - Who executeth both God's and his own vengeance upon me.

Verse 17
Yet - Although we cannot excuse ourselves from many other sins, yet through thy grace we have kept ourselves from apostacy and idolatry, notwithstanding all examples and provocations.

Verse 18
Turned - From thy worship to idols.

Verse 19
Broken us - By inflicting upon us one breach after another, thou hast at last brought us to this pass. The place - A place extremely desolate, such as dragons love, Isaiah 13:21,22, and therefore full of horror, and danger. Covered us - With deadly horrors and miseries.

Yea - Because we are constant in thy worship, which they abhor.

Our soul - Our persons. Our belly - We are not only thrown down to the earth, but we lie there like dead carcases.
