Commentary
Wesley's Notes on the Bible

58:1 O congregation - The word seems to point at Saul's judges and counsellors; who met together to consult what they should do against David. Sons of men - So he calls them; to mind them that they were men, and must give an account to God for all their hard speeches.

Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out: he is excellent
