Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 25:21

_ _ In conscious innocence of the faults charged by his enemies, he confidently commits his cause to God. Some refer —

_ _ integrity, etc. — to God, meaning His covenant faithfulness. This sense, though good, is an unusual application of the terms.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 25:15-22.
