Psalm 6:7 Updated American Standard Version (UASV)
7 My eye wastes away because of grief;
    It has grown old because of all my enemies.

In this verse, the psalmist is expressing a deep sense of distress and asking God how long their suffering will continue. It suggests that the psalmist is feeling overwhelmed and is seeking relief and comfort from God. The verse can be understood as a prayer for help and an expression of trust in God’s faithfulness and goodness, even in the midst of difficult circumstances.

Many people have found comfort in this verse when they are going through difficult times and are feeling overwhelmed by their circumstances. It can be a reminder that God is present and attentive to our needs and that we can turn to him in prayer and trust that he will provide strength and guidance.

APOSTOLIC FATHERS Lightfoot

My eye wastes away. The word here rendered consumed in older Bibles—עָשַׁשׁ, ashash—means properly to fall in, to fall away, and is applied here to the eye as pining or wasting away from care, anxiety, and sorrow. Tears were poured forth from the eye, and it seemed to be exhausting itself in this manner. The meaning is that it had grown dim or that its sight began to fail, like that of an old man, on account of his troubles. Many have understood the word here rendered eye as referring to the countenance, but it is doubtful whether the word ever has this signification; and at any rate, the common signification, referring it to the eye, best suits this connection.

It has grown old. It experiences the effects commonly produced by age in blunting the power of vision. This is not an uncommon effect of grief and sadness. Even while I am writing this, I am called in my pastoral visitations to attend on a young lady lying on a bed of languishing, and probably of death, one of whose symptoms is a quite diminished, and indeed almost total loss of vision, as the effect of trouble and disease.

WALK HUMBLY WITH YOUR GOD THE BATTLE FOR THE CHRISTIAN MIND (1)-1

Because of all my enemies. From the trouble which they have brought upon me. The reference here, according to the interpretation proposed of the psalm, is to Absalom and those who were associated with him. Their conduct had been such as to bring upon David this overwhelming tide of sorrows.

By Albert Barnes and Edward D. Andrews
