CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Then thou scarest me - This is an address to God. He regarded him as the source of his sorrows, and he expresses his sense of this in language indeed very beautiful, but far from reverence.

"And we all do Fade as a Leaf, and Our Iniquities, Like the Wind, have Taken us Away. "
The Sinner Stripped of his Vain Pleas.
"I am not at ease, nor am I quiet, And I am not at rest, but turmoil comes."
"When I lie down I say, 'When shall I arise?' But the night continues, And I am continually tossing until dawn.
"If I say, 'My bed will comfort me, My couch will ease my complaint,'
So that my soul would choose suffocation, Death rather than my pains.
