Encouragement from Psalm 6

On Psalm 6 William Plumer comments:

“With believers when things get to the worst then they get better. To them darkness is the harbinger of light; grief, of gladness; humility, of exaltation; death, of life. The whole Psalm teaches thus . . . The pious man has a friend in heaven, and on that account has no reason to be violently overcome by his sorrow.”

And Matthew Henry on Psalm 4:6:

“It has often been the the lot of the best of men to be men of sorrows; our Lord Jesus himself was so.”
