Psalms 119:29

Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me your law graciously.
Read Chapter 119

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
29. "Take Thou from me the way of iniquity" (ver. 29). And since the law of works hath entered in, that sin might abound; he addeth, "And pity me according to Thy law." By what law, save by the law of faith? Hear the Apostle: "Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? Of works. Nay: but by the law of faith." This is the law of faith, whereby we believe and pray that it may be granted us through grace; that we may effect that which we cannot fulfil through ourselves; that we may not, ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to stablish our own, fail to submit ourselves unto the righteousness of God.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Iniquity. Hebrew, "lying. "Let me not imitate the wicked. (Haydock) Remit the punishment of my sins, (Psalm cvi. 17.; Calmet) also original sin, and its effects. (St. Hilary) Protect me from falling. (Worthington)

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