CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Lord, why castest thou off my soul? - Why dost thou forsake or abandon me? Why is it that thou dost not interpose, since thou hast all power, and since thou art a God of mercy? Why dost thou not deliver me from my troubles? How often are good people constrained to ask this question! How often does this language express exactly what is passing in their minds! How difficult, too, it is to answer the question, and to see why that God who has all power, and who is infinitely benevolent, does not interpose to deliver his people in affliction! The answer to this question cannot be fully given in this world; there will be an answer furnished doubtless in the future life.
Why hidest thou thy face from me? - Why dost thou not lift up the light of thy countenance upon me, and show me thy favor? God seemed to turn away from him. He seemed unwilling even to look upon the sufferer. He permitted him to bear his sorrows, unpitied and alone.

I am poor and in misery even from my youth up,(1) …

"Why do You hide Your face And consider me Your enemy?
For the choir director. A Psalm of David. How long, O LORD? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me?
For You are the God of my strength; why have You rejected me? Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
Yet You have rejected us and brought us to dishonor, And do not go out with our armies.
Why do You hide Your face And forget our affliction and our oppression?
