Not illustrated. 1852 edition. Excerpt: ...of the earth, or this dark world, is filled with homes of cruelty. This word (oten), here as elsewhere, comprehends the two ideas of injustice and violence. See above, on Ps. vii. 17 (16.) xviii. 49 (48.) The use of the word homes (or habitations) indicates that violence or cruelty is there domesticated, permanently resident. See above, on Ps. xxv. 13. The meaning of the whole verse, thus explained, is, that the permanent establishment and prevalence of "wrong and outrage" in the darkness of the world may be urged as a reason for the fulfilment of God's promise, nay, his solemn oath, that the whole earth shall be filled with his glory (Num. xiv. 21.) 21.

See above, on Ps. ix. 10 (9.) x. 18. Turn back, abandon his pursuit, retire in despair. Confounded, disappointed, put to shame, by the frustration of his hopes and wishes. See above, on Ps. xxxv. 4. xl. 15 (14.) lxix. 7 (6.) lxx. 3 (2.) 22. Arise, oh God! Plead thine own cause! Remember thy reviling by the fool all day! The first prayer is the common one, that God would put an end to his apparent inaction and indifference to the sufferings of his servants. See above, on Ps. iii. 8 (7.) vii. 7 (6.) ix. 20 (19.) x. 12. xvii. 13. xxxv. 2. xliv. 27 (26.) Plead thine own cause, literally, strive thy strife. Sec above, on Ps xliii. 1. 'Remember how thou art reviled by the irrational transgressor, and arouse thyself to silence his reproaches.' 23. Forget not the voice of thy foes, the noise of thy assailants, ascending always. The voice and noise here meant are the clamorous revilings and blasphemies of wicked men, more
