O LORD God, turn not away the face of your anointed: remember the mercies of David your servant.

George Leo Haydock
Anointed. Cover not with shame the king, whom thou hast appointed, (Haydock) nor reject my prayer. (Tirinus)
Mercies, which thou hast shewn, or rather (Calmet) the acts of virtue which thy servant displayed. (Syriac) For thy servant David's sake, turn not away the face of thy anointed, Psalm cxxxi. In consideration of his merits, grant my request. (Calmet)
Even Solomon, though at this time the object of God's complacency, disdains not to screen himself under the merits of the departed saints. (Haydock)
