Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 16:4

_ _ He expresses his abhorrence of those who seek other sources of happiness or objects of worship, and, by characterizing their rites by drink offerings of blood, clearly denotes idolaters. The word for “sorrows” is by some rendered “idols”; but, though a similar word to that for idols, it is not the same. In selecting such a term, there may be an allusion, by the author, to the sorrows produced by idolatrous practices.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 16:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 16:4

Sorrows — Having shewed his affection to the servants of the true God, he now declares what an abhorrency he has for those that worship idols. Offerings — In which the Gentiles used sometimes to drink part of the blood of their sacrifices. Names — Of those other gods mentioned before.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
