9 Jehovah has heard my plea;
Jehovah accepts my prayer.
In this verse, the psalmist is expressing his confidence that God has heard his cry for mercy and has accepted his prayer. The psalmist believes that God is attentive to his needs and is ready to help him in his time of need.
The verse suggests that the psalmist is going through a difficult time and is seeking God’s help and guidance. He is relying on God’s mercy and grace to sustain him and to bring him through his trials. The psalmist trusts that God will answer his prayer and provide the help and support that he needs.
Overall, this verse is a testament to the power of prayer and the faith that the psalmist has in God’s faithfulness and goodness. It encourages believers to trust in God and to turn to him in prayer, knowing that he is always ready to listen and to provide the help and guidance that we need.
Jehovah has heard my plea. Repeating the sentiment in the previous verse to express his assurance and his joy. Nothing is more natural in such circumstances than to dwell on the joyous thought and to repeat it to us so that it may make its full impression.
Jehovah accepts my prayer. As he has done it, he will still do it. This allays all fears of the future and makes the mind calm. The state of mind here is this:—“The Lord has heard my prayer; I am assured that he will do it hereafter; I have, therefore, nothing to fear.”
