Psalm 88:4 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
I am counted with them that go down into the pit - I am so near to death that I may be reckoned already as among the dead. It is so manifest to others that I must die - that my disease is mortal - that they already speak of me as dead. The word "pit" here means the grave - the same as Sheol in the previous verse. It means properly
(1) a pit,
(2) a cistern, Genesis 37:20,
(3) a prison or dungeon, Isaiah 24:22,
I am as a man that hath no strength - Who has no power to resist disease, no vigor of constitution remaining; who must die.

O Lord, Holy Father, be Thou blessed now and evermore; because as Thou wilt so it is done, and what Thou doest is good. Let Thy servant rejoice in Thee, not in himself, nor in any other; because Thou alone art the true joy, Thou art my hope and my crown, Thou art my joy and my honour, O Lord. What hath Thy servant, which he received not from Thee, even without merit of his own? Thine are all things which Thou hast given, and which Thou hast made. I am poor and in misery even from my youth up,(1) …
Thomas A Kempis—Imitation of Christ
His Past Work.
"My spirit is broken, my days are extinguished, The grave is ready for me.
Because I delivered the poor who cried for help, And the orphan who had no helper.
Be not far from me, for trouble is near; For there is none to help.
A Psalm of David. To You, O LORD, I call; My rock, do not be deaf to me, For if You are silent to me, I will become like those who go down to the pit.
Answer me quickly, O LORD, my spirit fails; Do not hide Your face from me, Or I will become like those who go down to the pit.
