CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Commit thy way unto the - Lord. Margin, as in Hebrew, "Roll thy way upon, the Lord." Compare the notes at Psalm 22:8, where the marg., as the Hebrew, is, "He rolled himself on the Lord." See also 1 Peter 5:7. The idea is that of rolling a heavy burden from ourselves on another, or laying it upon him, so that he may bear it.

God wants rested workers. There is an energy that may be tireless and ceaseless, and yet still as the ocean's depth, with the peace of God, which passes all understanding.

1 Peter 5:7
casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.
Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, And trust in the LORD.
Cast your burden upon the LORD and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.
Trust in Him at all times, O people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding.
Commit your works to the LORD And your plans will be established.
