Psalms 90:7

For we are consumed by your anger, and by your wrath are we troubled.
Read Chapter 90

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
7. Making no secret that this fate is a penalty inflicted for sin, he adds at once, "For we consume away in Thy displeasure, and are troubled at Thy wrathful indignation" (ver. 7): we consume away in our weakness, and are troubled from the fear of death; for we are become weak, and yet fearful to end that weakness. "Another," saith He, "shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not:" although not to be punished, but to be crowned, by martyrdom; and the soul of our Lord, transforming us into Himself, was sorrowful even unto death: for "the Lord's going out" is no other than in "death."

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