    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 88:4

    I am counted with them, etc. - I am as good as dead; nearly destitute of life and hope.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 88:4

    I am counted with them that go down into the pit - I am so near to death that I may be reckoned already as among the dead. It is so manifest to others that I must die - that my disease is mortal - that they already speak of me as dead. The word "pit" here means the grave - the same as Sheol in the previous verse. It means properly

    (1) a pit,

    (2) a cistern, Genesis 37:20,

    (3) a prison or dungeon, Isaiah 24:22,

    (4) the grave, Psalm 28:1; Psalm 30:4; Isaiah 38:18.

    I am as a man that hath no strength - Who has no power to resist disease, no vigor of constitution remaining; who must die.

    Wesley's Notes on Psalms 88:4

    88:4 Counted - l am given up by my friends for a lost man.
