Psalms 119:153

Consider my affliction, and deliver me: for I do not forget your law.
Read Chapter 119

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
151. Let no man, set in Christ's body, imagine these words to be alien from himself, since in truth it is the whole body of Christ placed in this humble state that speaketh: "O consider my humiliation, and deliver me: for I forget not Thy law" (ver. 153). In this place we cannot understand any law of God so suitably, as that whereby it is immutably determined that "every one that exalteth himself, shall be abased; and every one that humbleth himself; shall be exalted."

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Humiliation. Or "humility "as St. Augustine understands it of that virtue. (Calmet)

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