(22) Burden.--A word peculiar to this passage, probably meaning "gift," hence "lot" or "condition." The Talmud, however, uses the word as meaning "burden" and the LXX. by rendering "care" have prepared the way for the Christian consolation in 1Peter 5:7.

Verse 22. - Cast thy burden upon the Lord; rather, thy portion - or, the lot assigned thee - that which God has given thee to bear. And he shall sustain thee. God will support thee under the lot which he assigns, however hard it is. He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved; i.e. to be disturbed, shaken, unsettled from their faith in him. Note that these promises are made to the righteous only; and, among them, only to those who cast themselves in full faith upon God.
