Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 119:131-135

_ _ An ardent desire (compare Psalms 56:1, Psalms 56:2) for spiritual enlightening, establishment in a right course, deliverance from the wicked, and evidence of God’s favor is expressed

_ _ I opened my mouth, and panted — as a traveler in a hot desert pants for the cooling breeze (Psalms 63:1; Psalms 84:2).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

Psalms 119:131

_ _ Here is, 1. The desire David had towards the word of God: I longed for thy commandments. When he was under a forced absence from God's ordinances he longed to be restored to them again; when he enjoyed ordinances he greedily sucked in the word of God, as new-born babes desire the milk. When Christ is formed in the soul there are gracious longings, unaccountable to one that is a stranger to the work. 2. The degree of that desire appearing in the expressions of it: I opened my mouth and panted, as one overcome with hear, or almost stifled, pants for a mouthful of fresh air. Thus strong, thus earnest, should our desires be towards God and the remembrance of his name, Psalms 42:1, Psalms 42:2. Luke 12:50.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 119:131

Panted — I thirst after thy precepts, and pursue them eagerly.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
