Psalms 77:9

Has God forgotten to be gracious? has he in anger shut up his tender mercies? Selah.
Read Chapter 77

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
10. "Or will God forget to be merciful?" (ver. 9). In thee, from thee unto another there is no mercy unless God bestow it on thee: and shall God Himself forget mercy? The stream runneth: shall the spring itself be dried up? "Or shall God forget to be merciful: or shall He keep back in anger His mercies?" That is, shall He be so angry, as that He will not have mercy? He will more easily keep back anger than mercy.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Mercies? Turning the waters another way, (Muis; Calmet) or going against his natural inclination. Vincit illum misericordia sua. (St. Jerome)

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