CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
But do thou for me, O God the Lord, for thy name's sake - That is, Interpose for me; exert thy power in my behalf. The phrase "for thy name's sake" implies that the motive which prompted him was a desire that God might be honored. It was not primarily or mainly for his own happiness; it was that God might be glorified, that his character might be illustrated, that his plans might be accomplished. Compare the notes at Daniel 9:18-19.
Because thy mercy is good - That is, It is the characteristic of mercy to do good; to show kindness.
Deliver thou me - He prays that God would "manifest" himself as he really was, as a God of mercy.
