View Psalms 130 in the note window.
The psalmist confessing his sins, expresses his hope in God, ver. 1 - 6.
And exhorts Israel to hope in him, ver.7, 8.
A song of degrees.
3: Mark - Observe them accurately and punish them as they deserve.
Stand - At thy tribunal.
4: Forgiveness - Thou art able and ready to forgive repenting sinners.
Feared - Not with a slavish, but with a childlike fear. This mercy of
thine is the foundation of all religion, without which men would desperately
proceed in their impious courses.
5: I wait - That he would pardon my sins.
6: They - Whether soldiers that keep the night - watches in an army, or
the priests or Levites who did so in the temple.
7: Israel - Every true Israelite. Plenteous - Abundantly
sufficient for all persons who accept it upon God's terms.
