Psalms 119:88

Revive me according to your lovingkindness; so shall I keep the testimony of your mouth.
Read Chapter 119

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
88. And that She might persevere unto the end, "O quicken me," he saith, "after Thy loving mercy: and so shall I keep the testimonies of Thy mouth" (ver. 88); where the Greek hath Marturia. This was not to be passed over in silence, on account of that sweetest name of Martyrs, who beyond doubt when so great cruelty of the persecutors was raging, that the Church was almost made an end of upon earth, would never have kept the testimonies of God, unless that had been vouchsafed them which is here spoken of, "O quicken me after Thy loving-kindness." For they were quickened, lest by loving life, they should deny the life, and by denying it, should lose it: and thus they who for life refused to forsake the truth, lived by dying for the truth. Lamed.

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