    V An humble prayer, presenting to the Lord their great misery, ver. 1-15. Confessing their sins, ver. 16-18. Imploring deliverance, ver. 19-22.

    Verse 3. We - We are all of us without a king, (our common father) we are deprived of thy fatherly protection, and many young children among us are left without an earthly parent.

    Verse 4. Sold - Whereas at other times there was abundance of wood and water throughout Judea.

    Verse 6. We - The ten tribes were all carried captives into Assyria, and many of the kingdom of Judah fled into Egypt. Giving the hand may signify labouring for them: or, yielding up themselves to their power.

    Verse 7. Their iniquities - The punishment of them.

    Verse 9. The sword - The enemies lay encamped in all the plains, so that they could stir out no way but the sword of the Chaldeans was upon them.

    Verse 13. Fell - Not being able to stand under the burdens laid upon them.

    Verse 16. The crown - All our honour, splendour and dignity.

    Verse 19. Thy throne - Altho' for our sins thou sufferest our throne to be cast down, yet thou art the same, thy power is not diminished, nor thy goodness abated.

    Verse 21. Renew - Restore us to our former estate.
