    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 55:8

    The windy storm - From the sweeping wind and tempest - Absalom and his party and the mutinous people in general.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 55:8

    I would hasten my escape - I would make haste to secure an escape. I would not delay, but I would flee at once.

    From the windy storm and tempest - From the calamities which have come upon me, and which beat upon me like a violent tempest. If this psalm was composed on occasion of the rebellion of Absalom, it is easy to see with what propriety tiffs language is used. The troubles connected with that unnatural rebellion had burst upon him with the fury of a sudden storm, and threatened to sweep everything away.
