Psalms 14:6

You have shamed the counsel of the poor, but the LORD is his refuge.
Read Chapter 14

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
7. "For God is in the just generation." It refers to what went before, so that the sense is, "shall not all they that work iniquity know that the Lord is in the just generation;" that is, He is not in them who love the world. For it is unjust to leave the Maker of the worlds, and "serve the creature more than the Creator." Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, for the Lord is his hope" (ver. 6): that is, ye have despised the humble coming of the Son of God, because ye saw not in Him the pomp of the world: that they, whom he was calling, should put their hope in God alone, not in the things that pass away. ...

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Man, who wished sincerely to practise his religion, like Daniel Such you have persecuted, and hence God has filled you with alarms, and will punish you. (Calmet) Some persevere in justice, amid the general contagion and insults of men. (Worthington)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
