Matthew Henry's Psalms Chapter 6 Bible commentary...
The psalmist deprecates God's wrath, and begs for the return of his favour. (1-7) He assures himself of an answer of peace. (8-10)
1-7 These verses speak the language of a heart truly humbled, of a broken and contrite spirit under great afflictions, sent to awaken conscience and mortify corruption. Sickness brought sin to his remembrance, and he looked upon it as a token of God's displeasure against him. The affliction of his body will be tolerable, if he has comfort in his soul. Christ's sorest complaint, in his sufferings, was of the trouble of his soul, and the want of his Father's smiles. Every page of Scripture proclaims the fact, that salvation is only of the Lord. Man is a sinner, his case can only be reached by mercy; and never is mercy more illustrious than in restoring backsliders. With good reason we may pray, that if it be the will of God, and he has any further work for us or our friends to do in this world, he will yet spare us or them to serve him. To depart and be with Christ is happiest for the saints; but for them to abide in the flesh is more profitable for the church.
8-10 What a sudden change is here! Having made his request known to God, the psalmist is confident that his sorrow will be turned into joy. By the workings of God's grace upon his heart, he knew his prayer was accepted, and did not doubt but it would, in due time, be answered. His prayers will be accepted, coming up out of the hands of Christ the Mediator. The word signifies prayer made to God, the righteous Judge, as the God of his righteousness, who would plead his cause, and right his wrongs. A believer, through the blood and righteousness of Christ, can go to God as a righteous God, and plead with him for pardon and cleansing, who is just and faithful to grant both. He prays for the conversion of his enemies, or foretells their ruin.

AT SOME POINT IN ALL OF OUR LIVES, WE EXPERIENCE A TOTAL MELT-DOWN. GOD IS OUR STRENGTH AND RESTORATION. HE NEVER GIVES UP ON US.

My master does hear us, no matter what. He’s the good God, Jehovah is his name and the Son Jesus Christ and the only Holy Spirit.

This psalm uplifts and makes me feel good no matter what I am going through, because I know God is always on my side; he loves me and he protects me.

I read Palms 6 every morning as it helps me and makes me stronger and I know that Jesus is there for us and he will never forsake us. We must always thank him for all he has done for us. May God bless everyone.

This chapter lifts me up. I needed to read this and pray. I love the Lord and he loves us. Thank you, I Love You Lord.
