(19) Thoughts.--Properly, dividing--i.e., "perplexing" or "anxious" thoughts. (See Job 4:13; Job 20:2.) LXX. and Vulg., "griefs."

We may compare the Virgilian "animum nunc huc celerem, nunc dividit illuc," imitated by Tennyson:

This way and that dividing his swift mind,

In act to throw."

Delight.--Literally, stroke, and so soothe. The Hebrew word is used in Isaiah 66:11 of a mother quieting her child with the breast, and in Jeremiah 16:7 of the cup of consolation given to mourners at funerals.

Verse 19. - In the multitude of my thoughts within me; rather, my various thoughts, "my busy thoughts." Sarappim (as Dr. Kay observes) "are anxious, perplexing, branchings of thoughts," such as continually vex faithful yet doubting souls. Thy comforts delight my soul. Internal comfort is given by God himself to the perplexed and troubled in spirit, whereby they are "delighted," or, rather, "soothed and solaced."
