My wounds. The soul being invisible, its distempers are also so; therefore the sacred writers describe them by the distempers of the body. (See the Parallel Texts on these verses.) On reading these and similar passages, say Bp. Lowth, some, who were but little acquainted with the genius of Hebrew poetry, have pretended to enquire into the nature of the disease with which the poet was afflicted; not less absurdly in my opinion, that if they had perplexed themselves to discover in what river he was plunged, when he complains that `the deep waters had gone over his soul.'
