Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 27:13

_ _ The strong emotion is indicated by the incomplete sentence, for which the English Version supplies a proper clause; or, omitting that, and rendering, “yet I believed,” etc., the contrast of his faith and his danger is expressed.

_ _ to see — is to experience (Psalms 22:17).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 27:7-14.
