Psalms 119:86

All your commandments are faithful: they persecute me wrongfully; help me.
Read Chapter 119

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
86. Lastly, he addeth, "All Thy commandments are truth: they have persecuted me unjustly; O be Thou my help" (ver. 86). And the whole sense dependeth upon the foregoing: "How many are the days of Thy servant: when wilt Thou be avenged of them that persecute me?" For that they may persecute me, they have related to me these pleasant tales; but I have preferred Thy law to them, which on that account hath pleased me more, because all Thy commandments are true; not as in their discourses, where vanity aboundeth. And for this reason "they have persecuted me falsely," because in me they have persecuted nothing save the truth. Therefore help Thou me, that I may struggle for the truth even unto death; because this is at once Thy commandment, and therefore it is also the truth.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Help me. He does not pray to be exempted from trials, but that he may have grace to gain the victory. (St. Hilary)

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