Psalms 40:13

Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me.
Read Chapter 40

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
22. "Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me" (ver. 13). As if he were saying, "`If Thou wilt, Thou canst make me clean.' Be pleased to deliver me. O Lord, look upon me to help me." Look, that is, on the penitent members, members that lie in pain, members that are writhing under the instruments of the surgeon; but still in hope.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Be pleased. The rest is nearly transcribed, Psalm lxix. (Calmet) The Church prays for her weak members. (Worthington)

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