PSALM. V. Chapter Overview

David beseeches God to hear his prayer, verse 1-3.
Assures himself of God's justice against his enemies, verse 4-6.
Declares his resolution: to serve God, verse 7.
Prays for himself and the people of God, and against his enemies, verse 8-12.
To the chief musician upon Nehiloth, A psalm of David.

Title of the psalm. Nehiloth-This is no where else used in scripture. It is thought to signify a wind-instrument, as Neginoth signified stringed instruments.

Verse 1
Meditation - My prayer accompanied with deep thoughts and fervent affections of soul.

Verse 3
Morning - Every morning. As soon as I wake, I am still with thee, as he saith, Psalms 139:18. The first thing that I do is to pray to thee.

Verse 4
Surely - Thou dost not approve of, nor delight in them, or in their prayers. Dwelt - Have any fellowship with thee.

Verse 7
Come - With holy boldness and confidence. Mercy - Trusting only in thy great mercy. Fear - With an holy dread and reverence of thy majesty. Towards - Looking towards it, when I cannot come to it.

Verse 8
Righteousness - In thy righteous laws. Because - That I may give them no occasion of slandering me, or religion for my sake. The way - The way wherein thou wouldst have to one walk. Plain - That I may clearly discern it, and readily walk in it.

Verse 9
Throat - Wide opened ready to devour all that come within their reach. A metaphor from wild beasts gaping for the prey.

Verse 10
Destroy - Condemn and punish them. Cast - Out of thy land, and from among thy people.
