109:1 (To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.) Hold not thy
peace, O God of my a praise;
(a) Though all the world condemn me, yet you will approve
my innocence and that is sufficient praise to me.
109:4 For my love they are my adversaries: b but I [give
myself unto] prayer.
(b) To declare that I had no other refuge, but you, in
whom my conscience was at rest.
109:6 c Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at
his right hand.
(c) Whether it was Doeg or Saul, or some familiar friend
that had betrayed him, he prays not for private
affection, but moved by God's Spirit, that God would
take vengeance on him.
109:7 When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his
d prayer become sin.
(d) As to the elect all things turn to their profit, so to
the reprobate, even those things that are good, turn
to their damnation.
109:8 Let his days be few; [and] let another take his e
(e) This was chiefly accomplished in Judas, (Ac 1:20).
109:11 Let f the extortioner catch all that he hath; and let
the strangers spoil his labour.
(f) He declares that the curse of God lies on the
extortioners, who thinking to enrich their children
by their unlawfully gotten goods, are by God's just
judgment deprived of all.
109:14 g Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with
the LORD; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted
(g) Thus the Lord punishes to the third and fourth
generation the wickedness of the parents in their
109:16 Because that h he remembered not to shew mercy, but
persecuted the poor and needy man, that he might even
slay the broken in heart.
(h) He shows that God plagues them in a strange way who
show themselves cruel toward others.
109:17 As he loved cursing, i so let it come unto him: as he
delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him.
(i) Thus the Lord gives to every man the thing in which
he delights so that the reprobate cannot accuse God
of wrong, when they are given up to their lusts and
109:20 [Let] this [be] the reward of mine adversaries k from
the LORD, and of them that speak evil against my soul.
(k) For being destitute of man's help, he fully trusted
in the Lord, that he would deliver him.
109:21 But do thou for me, O GOD the Lord, for thy l name's
sake: because thy mercy [is] good, deliver thou me.
(l) As you are named merciful, gracious and long
suffering, so show yourself in effect.
109:23 I am gone like the shadow when it declineth: I am tossed
up and down as the m locust.
(m) Meaning that he has no stay or assurance in this
109:24 My knees are weak through fasting; and my flesh n
faileth of fatness.
(n) For hunger that came from sorrow, he was lean and his
natural moisture failed him.
109:26 Help me, O LORD my God: O o save me according to thy
(o) The more grievously Satan assailed him, the more
earnest and instant was he in prayer.
109:28 Let them p curse, but bless thou: when they arise, let
them be ashamed; but let thy servant rejoice.
(p) They will gain nothing by cursing me.
109:30 I will greatly praise the LORD with my q mouth; yea, I
will praise him among the multitude.
(q) Not only in confessing it secretly in myself but also
in declaring it before all the congregation.
109:31 For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor, to save
[him] from those that r condemn his soul.
(r) By this he shows that he had nothing to do with them
who were of little power, but with the judges and
princes of the world.
