The yoke of my transgressions is bound by his hand: they are woven together, and come up upon my neck: he has made my strength to fall, the Lord has delivered me into their hands, from whom I am not able to rise up.

has watched- as if: the vengeance punishes, which seemed to be asleep; while I am sleeping; provoking God to vengeance.
the yoke- to be put upon me.
my iniquities- which are from me.
folded together- by an unbreakable fetter.
put- as if they are about to choke.

a hand- of the Chaldean or rather of the Roman enemy or of the devil.
able to rise- whence: There is none to raise her up, the virgin of Israel.
