Psalm 44

44:4 My king - The whole people speak as one man, being united in one body.

44:11 Scattered - Those who were not slain are carried into captivity, and dispersed in several places.

44:16 Avenger - Who executeth both God's and his own vengeance upon me.

44:17 Yet - Although we cannot excuse ourselves from many other sins, yet through thy grace we have kept ourselves from apostacy and idolatry, notwithstanding all examples and provocations.

44:18 Turned - From thy worship to idols.

44:19 Broken us - By inflicting upon us one breach after another, thou hast at last brought us to this pass. The place - A place extremely desolate, such as dragons love, Isa 13:21,22, and therefore full of horror, and danger. Covered us - With deadly horrors and miseries.

44:22 Yea - Because we are constant in thy worship, which they abhor.

44:25 Our soul - Our persons. Our belly - We are not only thrown down to the earth, but we lie there like dead carcases.
