Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 37:5

_ _ Commit thy way — (Proverbs 16:3). Works — what you have to do and cannot set forth as a burden.

_ _ trust ... in him — literally, “on Him.” He will do what you cannot (compare Psalms 22:8; Psalms 31:6). He will not suffer your character to remain under suspicion.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 37:1-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Commit — All thy cares and business, and necessities, commend to God by fervent prayer.
