Psalms 56:11

In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.
Read Chapter 56

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
16. Let us therefore love God, brethren, purely and chastely. There is not a chaste heart, if God for reward it worshippeth. How so? Reward of the worship of God shall not we have? We shall have evidently, but it is God Himself whom we worship. Himself for us a reward shall be, because "we shall see Him as He is." Observe that a reward thou shalt obtain. ...I will tell you, brethren: in these human alliances consider a chaste heart, of what sort it is towards God: certainly human alliances are of such sort, that a man doth not love his wife, that loveth her because of her portion: a woman her husband doth not chastely love, that for these reasons loveth him, because something he hath given, or because much he hath given. Both a rich man is a husband, and one that hath become a poor man is a husband. How many men proscribed, by chaste wives have been the more beloved! Proved have been many chaste marriages by the misfortunes of husbands: that the wives might not be supposed to love any ...

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
To thee. Literally, "thy vows. "(Haydock) Houbigant chooses rather to follow the Syriac, "with thee, O God, are my vows: "which is clearer, though our version may be well explained, "I will perform my vows to thee "(Berthier) the sacrifice of praises, in this psalm. (Calmet) I will endeavour to comply with my engagements and vows. (Worthington)

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