|New International Version (© 2011)|
You kept my eyes from closing; I was too troubled to speak.
King James Bible
Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
American Standard Version
Thou holdest mine eyes watching: I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
Young's Literal Translation
Thou hast taken hold of the watches of mine eyes, I have been moved, and I speak not.
Psalm 77:4 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Thou holdest mine eyes waking - Literally, thou keepest the watches of mine eyes - my grief is so great that I cannot sleep.
I am so troubled that I cannot speak - This shows an increase of sorrow and anguish. At first he felt his misery, and called aloud. He receives more light, sees and feels his deep wretchedness, and then his words are swallowed by excessive distress. His woes are too big for utterance. "Small troubles are loquacious; the great are dumb." Curae leves loquuntur; ingentes stupent.
