Psalms 119:92

Unless your law had been my delights, I should then have perished in my affliction.
Read Chapter 119

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
92. He then looketh back towards the source of this earth's deliverance, which caused it to abide when founded; and addeth, "If my delight had not been in Thy law, I should perchance have perished in my humiliation" (ver. 92). This is the law of faith, not a vain faith, but that which worketh through love. Through this grace is gained, which maketh men courageous in temporal tribulation, that they may not perish in the humiliation of mortality.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Abjection. Man cannot rise from sin without grace, and attention to the law. (Worthington) This supports him under the punishment of sin. (Haydock) Meditation alleviates his grief, which might otherwise have proved mortal. (Berthier)

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