Peake's Commentary on the Bible

Psalms 130

Verses 1-8

CXXX. Waiting for God.

Psalms 130:1 . depths refers primarily to God’ s exaltation in heaven, man’ s position far below on earth.

Psalms 130:4 . The fear of Yahweh was to pious Jews the sum of religion. If God withdrew His kindness and pardon, no man could stand. On the other hand, forgiveness encourages a sinner to “ fear God and keep His commandments.” The LXX reads, “ for thy name’ s sake.”
