View Psalms 88 in the note window.

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, ver. 1 - 9. His humble pleadings with God, ver. 10 - 14. A farther declaration of his affliction, ver. 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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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