What does Psalm 40:11 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 40:11

Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O Lord
this is a petition of Christ to his Father, when in the midst of his sorrows and sufferings, before related; and particularly when he hid his face from him, and withheld the discoveries of his tender and affectionate love;

let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me;
as he had promised; of which promise some notice is given, ( Isaiah 49:8 ) , in the fulfilment of which the lovingkindness, truth, and faithfulness of God, would appear. Some read these words as expressive of faith in these things, "thou wilt not withhold" "thy lovingkindness and thy truth shall continually preserve me" F15.
