1 The complaints, prayers, fervent zeal and great anguish of David is set forth as a figure of Christ and all his members. 21 The malicious cruelty of the enemies. 22 And their punishment also. 26 Where Judas and such traitors are accursed. 30 He gathereth courage in his affliction, and offereth praises unto God, 32 Which are more acceptable than all sacrifices: whereof all the afflicted may take comfort. 35 Finally, he doth provoke all creatures to praises, prophesying of the kingdom of Christ, and the preservation of the Church, where all the faithful, 27 And their seed shall dwell forever.To him that excelleth upon Shoshannim. A Psalm of David. Save me, O God: for the waters are entered even to my soul.
To the Pure and Shining OneDavid’s poetic song of praise to the tune of “Lilies” God, my God, come and save me! These floods of trouble have risen higher and higher. The water is up to my neck! I’m sinking into the mud with no place to stand, and I’m about to drown in this storm.
To victory, on the roses of David. God, make thou me safe; for waters have entered unto my soul. (To victory, for the lilies, by David/the psalm, or the song, of David. God, save thou me; for the waters have entered unto my soul!)
