    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 143:11

    Quicken me, O Lord - Give me life. Compare the notes at Ephesians 2:1. Make me equal to my circumstances, for I am ready to sink and to yield.

    For thy name's sake - For thine honor. Compare the notes at Daniel 9:17-18. It is in thy cause. Thou wilt thus show thy power, thy faithfulness, thy goodness. Thou wilt thus get honor to thyself. This is the highest motive which can influence us - that God may be glorified.

    For thy righteousness' sake - Thy justice; thy truth; thy faithfulness in performing thy promises and pledges.

    Bring my soul out of trouble - Out of this trouble and distress. See the notes at Psalm 25:17.
