Bible commentary

Discussion for Psalms 71:9

  • Marilyn Smither Byrd for verse 9
    I love this scripture. I witnessed how God protected my mother during her old age and her struggles with multiple medical issues. When the medical experts gave her up, the Lord surrounded her in His divine care and comforted her until He called her home to live externally with Him.
  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 9
    Cast me not off in my time of old age, when my strength fails, forsake me not. In America youth is worshiped. Yet God does not cast us off in old age, and protects us even when our strength fails. Jesus said I will never leave you or forsake you, I will be with you always even until the end of the age. What a comfort to know that Jehovah has been carrying us from our youth, until old age. May the Lord bless all senior citizens today, and comfort them in their time of weakness.
