Psalms 26:3

For your lovingkindness is before my eyes: and I have walked in your truth.
Read Chapter 26

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
3. "Prove me, O Lord, and try me" (ver. 2). Lest, however, any of my secret sins should be hid from me, prove me, O Lord, and try me, making me known, not to Thee from whom nothing is hid, but to myself, and to men. "Burn my reins and my heart." Apply a remedial purgation, as it were fire, to my pleasures and thoughts. "For Thy mercy is before mine eyes" (ver. 3). For, that I be not consumed by that fire, not my merits, but Thy mercy, whereby Thou hast brought me on to such a life, is before my eyes. "And I have been pleasing in Thy truth." And since my own falsehood hath been displeasing to me, but Thy truth pleasing, I have myself been pleasing also with it and in it.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Truth. Before such a judge, I fear no calumny. I have always endeavoured to imitate these divine perfections. (Calmet) Hebrew, "I have walked constantly in thy truth "which could not be without loving it. (Berthier)

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