CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible

Neither the tent nor any of the Versions intimate that a falling into sin is meant; but a falling into trouble, difficulty, etc.

Sustain me, my God, according to your promise, and I will live; do not let my hopes be dashed.
May your hand be ready to help me, for I have chosen your precepts.
The LORD upholds all who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down.
