|New International Version (© 2011)|
Be merciful to me, LORD, for I am in distress; my eyes grow weak with sorrow, my soul and body with grief.
King James Bible
Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly.
American Standard Version
Have mercy upon me, O Jehovah, for I am in distress: Mine eye wasteth away with grief, yea , my soul and my body.
Young's Literal Translation
Favour me, O Jehovah, for distress is to me, Mine eye, my soul, and my body Have become old by provocation.
Psalm 31:9 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Mine eye is consumed - He now returns, and speaks of his present situation. Grief had brought many tears from his eyes, many agonies into his soul, and many distressful feelings into his whole frame.
My soul and my belly - The belly is often taken for the whole body. But the term belly or bowels, in such as case as this, may be the most proper; for in distress and misery, the bowels being the most tender part, and in fact the very seat of compassion, they are often most affected. In Greek the word σπλαγχνον signifies a bowel, and σπλαγχνιζομαι signifies to be moved with compassion; to feel misery in the bowels at the sight of a person in pain and distress.
