Verses 145 -152
“I cried with my whole heart; hear me, O Lord…I cried unto thee; save me…I prevented the dawning of the morning and cried…Mine eyes prevent the night watches, that I might meditate in thy word. Hear my voice according to thy lovingkindness: O Lord, quicken me according to thy judgment. They draw nigh that follow after mischief…Thou are near, O Lord…concerning thy testimonies, I have known of old that thou has founded them for ever.”
The psalmist cries, prays, pleas and calls for God’s salvation from enemies that are all about. They draw near who don’t know God’s law, but the psalmist keeps and meditates on His commandments. He is confident and assured of the reliable safety of God’s nearness.
