Cum invocarem. The prophet teacheth us to flee to God in tribulation, with confidence in him.

[1] Unto the end, in verses. A psalm for David. [2] When I called upon him, the God of my justice heard me: when I was in distress, thou hast enlarged me. Have mercy on me: and hear my prayer. [3] O ye sons of men, how long will you be dull of heart? why do you love vanity, and seek after lying? [4] Know ye also that the Lord hath made his holy one wonderful: the Lord will hear me when I shall cry unto him. [5] Be angry, and sin not: the things you say in your hearts, be sorry for them upon your beds.

[1] Unto the end: Or, as St. Jerome renders it, victori, to him that overcometh: which some understand of the chief musician; to whom they suppose the psalms, which bear that title, were given to be sung: we rather understand the psalms thus inscribed to refer to Christ, who is the end of the law, and the great conqueror of death and hell, and to the New Testament.-- Ibid.

[1] In verses: in carminibus. In the Hebrew, it is neghinoth, supposed by some to be a musical instrument, with which this psalm was to be sung.-- Ibid.

[1] For David: That is, inspired to David himself, or to be sung.

[6] Offer up the sacrifice of justice, and trust in the Lord: many say, Who sheweth us good things? [7] The light of thy countenance O Lord, is signed upon us: thou hast given gladness in my heart. [8] By the fruit of their corn, their wine and oil, they are multiplied. [9] In peace in the selfsame I will sleep, and I will rest: [10] For thou, O Lord, singularly hast settled me in hope.
