Arthur 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."
