Psalms 6:6

_ _ By a strong figure the abundance as well as intensity of grief is depicted.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 6:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 6:6

With my tears — It well becomes the greatest spirits to be tender, and to relent under the tokens of God's displeasure. David who could face Goliath himself, melts into tears at the remembrance of sin, and under the apprehension of Divine wrath, and it is no diminution to his character.
