PSALM CIX. Chapter Overview

David complains of his enemies and appeals to God, verse 1-5.
Foretells their destruction, verse 6-20.
Prays that God would succour him in his low condition, verse 21-29.
Concludes with a joyful hope of deliverance, verse 30, 31 To the chief musician, A psalm of David.

Verse 1
God - The author and matter of all my praises.

Verse 4
Adversaries - They requite my love with enmity, as it is explained verse 5.

Verse 6
A wicked man - Who will rule him with rigour and cruelty. Satan - To accuse him; for this was the place and posture of accusers in the Jewish courts.

Verse 7
Sin - Because it is not from his heart.

Verse 10
Desolate places - Into which they are fled for fear and shame.

Verse 11
Catch - Heb. ensnare, take away not only by oppression but also by cunning artificers. Stranger - Who hath no right to his goods.

Verse 17
Delighted not - In desiring and promoting the welfare of others.

Verse 18
Garment - Which a man wears constantly. Like water - Water in the cavity of the belly, between the bowels, is almost certain death. And oil soaking into any of the bones, will soon utterly destroy it.

Verse 20
That speak evil against my soul - With design to take away my life.

Verse 21
Is good - Above the mercy of all the creatures.

Verse 23
When - Towards the evening, when the sun is setting. The locust - Which is easily driven away with every wind.
