Psalms 119:124

Deal with your servant according unto your mercy, and teach me your statutes.
Read Chapter 119

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
123. In connection with this he goes on to say, "O deal with Thy servant according to Thy loving mercy" (ver. 124); not according to my righteousness. "And teach me," he saith, "Thy righteousnesses;" those beyond doubt, whereby God rendereth men righteous, not they themselves.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Mercy. When we have been most diligent, there still remains much to be done, and in many things we offend. (St. Ambrose)

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