    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 142:6

    I am brought very low - Never was I so near total ruin before.

    Deliver me from my persecutors - They are now in full possession of the only means of my escape.

    They are stronger than I-- What am I and my men against this well-appointed armed multitude, with their king at their head.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 142:6

    Attend unto my cry - Give ear to me when I cry to thee. Do not turn away and refuse to hear me.

    For I am brought very low - I am reduced greatly; I am made very poor. The language would be applicable to one who had been in better circumstances, and who had been brought down to a condition of danger, of poverty, of want. It is language which is commonly applied to poverty.

    Deliver me from my persecutors - Saul and his followers.

    For they are stronger than I-- More in number; better armed; better suited for battle.

    Wesley's Notes on Psalms 142:6
