Verse 2. - Hearken unto the voice of my cry (comp. Psalm 27:7; Psalm 28:2; Psalm 64:1; Psalm 119:149; Psalm 130:2; Psalm 140:6). The Oriental habit of making requests in loud and shrill tones is the origin of these forms of speech. My King. David was "king" over Israel; but Jehovah was "King" over David (comp. Psalm 10:16; Psalm 29:10; Psalm 44:4; Psalm 47:6, etc.). And my God (see Psalm 84:3). For auto thee will I pray. To thee, i.e., and to no other. 5:1-6 God is a prayer-hearing God. Such he has always been, and he is still as ready to hear prayer as ever. The most encouraging principle of prayer, and the most powerful plea in prayer, is, to look upon him as our King and our God. David also prays to a sin-hating God. sin is folly, and sinners are the greatest of all fools; fools of their own making. Wicked people hate God; justly are they hated of him, and this will be their endless misery and ruin. Let us learn the importance of truth and sincerity, in all the affairs of life. Liars and murderers resemble the devil, and are his children, therefore it may well be expected that God should abhor them. These were the characters of David's enemies; and such as these are still the enemies of Christ and his people.
