(19) O Lord.--Not in Samuel. Probably belongs to end of last verse.

For thy servant's sake.--Comp. Psalm 132:10; 2Chronicles 6:42. Samuel has the more original "for thy word's sake." (Comp. 1Chronicles 17:23, and 1Chronicles 16:15.)

Heart--i.e., purpose, intent.

In making known all these great things. (greatnesses).--The repetition "greatness . . . greatnesses" is probably a scribe's error. Samuel has the right text: "Thou hast done all this greatness" (work of power, ???????), viz., informing Thy servant of what shall be hereafter. Isaiah makes the miracle of prediction a special difference between the true God and idols (Isaiah 41:21-29; Isaiah 45:11; Isaiah 45:21). . . .

Verse 19. - For thy servant's sake. The parallel place reads, "For thy word's sake." This reading is superior, and well suits the connection, suggesting also whether the first occurrence of the word "servant" in the previous verse might not be similarly explained. The similarity of the characters of the words in the Hebrew would render easy the exchange of the one word for the other.
