Let them be before the Lord continually
And not cast behind his back, or into the depths of the sea, never to be seen more, as sins are when forgiven; but be always in sight, as loathsome and abominable, and causing those that committed them to be abhorred for them; and be before him, as a Judge, to examine them, the nature and kind of them, and to condemn and punish for them; see ( Exodus 20:5 ) . The Targum is,
``let them be before the Word of the Lord always;''see ( Hebrews 4:13 ) .
That he may cut off the memory of them from the earth;
so that they may not be remembered with any applause, or their name spoken of with any commendation; see ( Job 18:17 ) .
