CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Hide not thy face - from me - As my face is towards thee wheresoever I am, so let thy face be turned towards me. In a Persian MS. poem entitled Shah we Gudda, "The King and the Beggar," I have found a remarkable couplet, most strangely and artificially involved, which expresses exactly the same sentiment one meaning of which is: -
Our face is towards Thee in all our ways;

Και ωτα αυτου εις δεησις αυτων·
Προσωπον δε Κυριου επι ποιουντας κακα.

For the director of music. With stringed instruments. According to sheminith. A psalm of David. LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your wrath.
For he has not despised or scorned the suffering of the afflicted one; he has not hidden his face from him but has listened to his cry for help.
Hear, LORD, and be merciful to me; LORD, be my help."
For the LORD loves the just and will not forsake his faithful ones. Wrongdoers will be completely destroyed; the offspring of the wicked will perish.
But as for me, I am poor and needy; may the Lord think of me. You are my help and my deliverer; you are my God, do not delay.
For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A maskil of David. Listen to my prayer, O God, do not ignore my plea;
Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings.
