    Psalms 87 - Psalms 89 >> - HELP - FACEBOOK - GR FORUMS - GODRULES ON YOUTUBE    




    PS 88 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.

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

    Verse 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.

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

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

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

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

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