Psalms 26:9

Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men:
Read Chapter 26

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
9. "Destroy not my soul with the ungodly" (ver. 9). Destroy not then, together with them that hate Thee, my soul, which hath loved the beauty of Thy house. "And my life with the men of blood." And with them that hate their neighbour. For Thy house is beautified with the two commandments.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Take; literally, "destroy "(Haydock) or suffer me not to be contaminated or lost. (Worthington) Hebrew, "gather. "Protestants, or "take not away. "(Marginal note; and St. Jerome) (Haydock) Hebrew may be more expressive, and agrees with the parable, where God orders the cockle to be gathered into bundles, to be burnt. (Berthier) Treat me not like the wicked and murderers, who are cut off before their time. (Calmet) David alludes to a future state, as he knew that the wicked were not always punished here. (Berthier) O God is not in Hebrew, Septuagint, or St. Augustine. (Calmet) But it is understood. (Haydock)

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