(48) My hands.--See Psalm 28:2. The expression here is elliptical: "I will lift my hands in prayer for power to observe Thy commands."

Verse 48. - My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved. In a sort of qualified worship (comp. Genesis 14:22; Psalm 28:2; Psalm 134:2; Psalm 141:2; Lamentations 3:41). And I will meditate in thy statutes. Almost a repetition of ver. 15a.
