Psalms 6 Commentary - Matthew Henry Commentary on the Whole Bible (Concise)

Chapter 6

The psalmist deprecates God's wrath, and begs for the return of his favour. (1-7) He assures himself of an answer of peace. (8-10)

Verses 1-7 These verses speak the language of a heart truly humbled, of a broken and contrite spirit under great afflictions, sent to awaken conscience and mortify corruption. Sickness brought sin to his remembrance, and he looked upon it as a token of God's displeasure against him. The affliction of his body will be tolerable, if he has comfort in his soul. Christ's sorest complaint, in his sufferings, was of the trouble of his soul, and the want of his Father's smiles. Every page of Scripture proclaims the fact, that salvation is only of the Lord. Man is a sinner, his case can only be reached by mercy; and never is mercy more illustrious than in restoring backsliders. With good reason we may pray, that if it be the will of God, and he has any further work for us or our friends to do in this world, he will yet spare us or them to serve him. To depart and be with Christ is happiest for the saints; but for them to abide in the flesh is more profitable for the church.

Verses 8-10 What a sudden change is here! Having made his request known to God, the psalmist is confident that his sorrow will be turned into joy. By the workings of God's grace upon his heart, he knew his prayer was accepted, and did not doubt but it would, in due time, be answered. His prayers will be accepted, coming up out of the hands of Christ the Mediator. The word signifies prayer made to God, the righteous Judge, as the God of his righteousness, who would plead his cause, and right his wrongs. A believer, through the blood and righteousness of Christ, can go to God as a righteous God, and plead with him for pardon and cleansing, who is just and faithful to grant both. He prays for the conversion of his enemies, or foretells their ruin.

Psalms 6 Commentary - Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible

PSALM 6

Psalms 6:1-10 . On Neginoth eighth--an instrument for the eighth key; or, more probably, the bass, as it is contrasted with Alamoth (the treble, Psalms 46:1 ) in 1 Chronicles 15:20 1 Chronicles 15:21 . In deep affliction the Psalmist appeals to God's mercy for relief from chastisement, which otherwise must destroy him, and thus disable him for God's service. Sure of a gracious answer, he triumphantly rebukes his foes.

1. He owns his ill desert in begging a relief from chastisement.

2. I am weak--as a culled plant ( Isaiah 24:4 ).
my bones--the very frame.
are vexed--( Psalms 2:5 )--shaken with fear.

3. how long?--shall this be so (compare Psalms 79:5 ).
but--or, "and."
thou--The sentence is incomplete as expressive of strong emotion.

4. Return--that is, to my relief; or, "turn," as now having His face averted.
for thy mercies' sake--to illustrate Thy mercy.

5. (Compare Psalms 115:17 Psalms 115:18 , Isaiah 38:18 ). There is no incredulity as to a future state. The contrast is between this scene of life, and the grave or Sheol, the unseen world of the dead.
give . . . thanks--or, "praise for mercies."

6. By a strong figure the abundance as well as intensity of grief is depicted.

7. consumed--or, "has failed," denoting general debility ( Psalms 13:3 , 38:10 ).
waxeth old--or, "dim."
grief--mingled with indignation.

8, 9. Assured of God's hearing, he suddenly defies his enemies by an address indicating that he no longer fears them.

10. and knows they will be disappointed and in their turn (compare Psalms 6:3 ) be terror-stricken or confounded.
