Ps 86:1-17. This is a prayer in which the writer, with deep emotion, mingles petitions and praises, now urgent for help, and now elated with hope, in view of former mercies. The occurrence of many terms and phrases peculiar to David's Psalms clearly intimates its authorship.
8. neither . . . works--literally, "nothing like thy works," the "gods" have none at all.
11. Teach--Show, point out.
16. son . . . handmaid--homeborn servant (compare Lu 15:17).
17. Show me--literally, "Make with me a token," by Thy providential care. Thus in and by his prosperity his enemies would be confounded.
