Parallel Commentaries
Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary

143:7-12 David prays that God would be well pleased with him, and let him know that he was so. He pleads the wretchedness of his case, if God withdrew from him. But the night of distress and discouragement shall end in a morning of consolation and praise. He prays that he might be enlightened with the knowledge of God's will; and this is the first work of the Spirit. A good man does not ask the way in which is the most pleasant walking, but what is the right way. Not only show me what thy will is, but teach me how to do it. Those who have the Lord for their God, have his Spirit for their Guide; they are led by the Spirit. He prays that he might be enlivened to do God's will. But we should especially seek the destruction of our sins, our worst enemies, that we may be devotedly God's servants.

Pulpit Commentary

Verse 11. - Quicken me, O Lord, for thy Name's sake; i.e. give me fresh spiritual life (setup. Psalm 119:25, 37, 50, 88, 93, etc.). For thy righteousness' sake bring my soul out of trouble. To show how righteous thou art, i.e. how good and gracious.

Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible

Quicken me, O Lord, for thy name's sake,.... Being like one dead, Psalm 143:3; that is, revive and cheer his drooping spirit, ready to fail, being overwhelmed within him, Psalm 143:4; as well as revive the work of grace in him; and quicken his soul to the exercise of grace, and discharge of duty; and this he desires not only for his own soul's good, but for the glory of God, that his name might be hououred, and not blasphemed;

for thy righteousness' sake bring my soul out of trouble; for as he had his bodily troubles and other outward affliction, he had soul troubles, through the corruptions of his nature, the temptations of Satan, and the hidings of God's face; which beset him around, and greatly straitened and afflicted him, and filled him with doubts and fears; from all which he desires deliverance, for the sake of the righteousness of God, or his faithfulness to his promise, that he would deliver his people in distress when they called upon him; See Gill on Psalm 143:1. This interprets the meaning of the petition in Psalm 142:7.

Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary

11. (Compare Ps 23:3; 119:156).
