Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 130:3

_ _ shouldest mark — or, “take strict account” (Job 10:14; Job 14:16), implying a confession of the existence of sin.

_ _ who shall stand — (Psalms 1:6). Standing is opposed to the guilty sinking down in fear and self-condemnation (Malachi 3:2; Revelation 6:15, Revelation 6:16). The question implies a negative, which is thus more strongly stated.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 130:1-4.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
