    PSALM 13

    Ps 13:1-6. On title, see Introduction. The Psalmist, mourning God's absence and the triumph of his enemies, prays for relief before he is totally destroyed, and is encouraged to hope his trust will not be in vain.

    1. The forms of expression and figure here used are frequent (compare Ps 9:12, 18; 10:11, 12).
    - How long . . . for ever--Shall it be for ever?

    2. The counsels or devices of his heart afford no relief.

    3. lighten mine eyes--dim with weakness, denoting approaching death (compare 1Sa 14:27-29; Ps 6:7; 38:10).

    4. rejoice--literally, "shout as in triumph."
    - I am moved--cast down from a firm position (Ps 10:6).

    5, 6. Trust is followed by rejoicing in the deliverance which God effects, and, instead of his enemy, he can lift the song of triumph.
