CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible

And they draw near unto the gates of death - They are sick, and are ready to die. The reference is to the under world - the world where the dead are supposed to dwell. This is represented here as a city which is entered through gates. See the notes at Psalm 9:13.

"Have the gates of death been revealed to you, Or have you seen the gates of deep darkness?
Be gracious to me, O LORD; See my affliction from those who hate me, You who lift me up from the gates of death,
For my soul has had enough troubles, And my life has drawn near to Sheol.
My heart has been smitten like grass and has withered away, Indeed, I forget to eat my bread.
Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble; He saved them out of their distresses.
