Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 31:5-6

_ _ commit my spirit — my life, or myself. Our Savior used the words on the Cross [Luke 23:46], not as prophetical, but, as many pious men have done, as expressive of His unshaken confidence in God. The Psalmist rests on God’s faithfulness to His promises to His people, and hence avows himself one of them, detesting all who revere objects of idolatry (compare Deuteronomy 32:21; 1 Corinthians 8:4).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 31:1-8.
