CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
The Hiph. הרחיב signifies to make broad, and as a transitive denominative applied to the mind and heart: to make a broad space equals to expand one's self (cf. as to the idea, Lamentations 2:13, "great as the sea is thy misfortune"), lxx ἐπληθύνθησαν, perhaps originally it was ἐπλατηύνθησαν. Accordingly הרחיבוּ is admissible so far as language is concerned; but since it gives only a poor antithesis to צרות it is to be suspected. The original text undoubtedly was הרחיב וממצוקותי (הרחיב, as in Psalm 77:2, or הרחיב, as e.g., in 2 Kings 8:6): the straits of my heart do Thou enlarge (cf. Psalm 119:32; 2 Corinthians 6:11) and bring me out of my distresses (Hitzig and others).

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.
2 Kings 20:3
"Now, O LORD, please remember how I have walked before you in faithfulness and with a whole heart, and have done what is good in your sight." And Hezekiah wept bitterly.
The LORD judges the peoples; judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness and according to the integrity that is in me.
But I have trusted in your steadfast love; my heart shall rejoice in your salvation.
You have tried my heart, you have visited me by night, you have tested me, and you will find nothing; I have purposed that my mouth will not transgress.
But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity; redeem me, and be gracious to me.
The LORD is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.
