PSALM LXXXVIII. Chapter Overview

This is the most melancholy of all the psalms: it is all lamentation, and mourning, and woe. Here we have the pressure of spirit which the psalmist was under, verse 1-9.
His humble pleadings with God, verse 10-14.
A farther declaration of his affliction, verse 15-18.
A song or psalm for the sons of Korah, to the chief musician upon Mahalath Leannoth, Maschil of Heman the Ezrahite.

Title of the psalm. Leannoth-Which seems to be the name of the instrument. Heman-Probably the same person who was famous in David's time, both for his skill in musick, and for wisdom.

Verse 4
Counted - l am given up by my friends for a lost man.

Verse 5
Free - Well nigh discharged from the warfare of the present life, and entered as a member into the society of the dead. Whom - Thou seemest to neglect and bury in oblivion.

Verse 7
Waves - With they judgments, breaking in furiously upon me like the waves of the sea.

Verse 10
Wonders - In raising them to life. To praise thee - In this world?

Verse 12
Forgetfulness - In the grave, where men are forgotten by their nearest relations.

Verse 13
Prevent - Come to thee before the dawning of the day, or the rising of the sun.

Verse 17
Water - As the waters of the sea encompass him who is in the midst of it.
