my heart grew hot within me. While I meditated, the fire burned; then I spoke with my tongue:
King James Bible
My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned: then spake I with my tongue,
American Standard Version
My heart was hot within me; While I was musing the fire burned: Then'spake I with my tongue:
Young's Literal Translation
Hot is my heart within me, In my meditating doth the fire burn, I have spoken with my tongue.
Psalm 39:3 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
My heart was hot within me - A natural feeling of repressed grief.
While I was musing - What was at first a simple sensation of heat produced a flame; the fire broke out that had long been smothered. It is a metaphor taken from vegetables, which, being heaped together, begin to heat and ferment, if not scattered and exposed to the air; and will soon produce a flame, and consume themselves and every thing within their reach.
