Psalms 119:155

Salvation is far from the wicked: for they seek not your statutes.
Read Chapter 119

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
153. "Health," he saith, "is far from the ungodly: for they regard not Thy righteousnesses" (ver. 155). This separateth thee, that what they have not done, thou hast done, that is, thou hast regarded the righteousnesses of God. But "what hast thou that thou hast not received?" Art thou not he who a little before didst say, "I will keep Thy righteousnesses"? Thou therefore hast received from Him, unto whom thou didst call, the power to keep them. He therefore doth Himself separate thee from those from whom health is far, because they have not regarded the righteousnesses of God.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Sinners. Such cannot expect to be liberated. (Calmet) Yet, as the captivity was fixed for seventy years, and many who were almost ignorant of the law, and had married strange wives, returned, this verse overturns that system, and shows that eternal salvation is meant. (Berthier)

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