Psalm 71:11 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
God hath forsaken him - "God, who has been his special help all through life, and who has guarded him so that no hand could be raised successfully against him, has now cast him off; therefore we shall easily prevail against him.

or they will tear me apart like a lion and rip me to pieces with no one to rescue me.
"A vile disease has afflicted him; he will never get up from the place where he lies."
because of what my enemy is saying, because of the threats of the wicked; for they bring down suffering on me and assail me in their anger.
