This thou hast seen, O Lord,.... The insults and derisions of these men, and the injuries they did to him, whom they hated. God is omniscient, and sees all things, all the evil wicked men do to him; and he will requite them in his own time; see Psalms 10:14;
keep not silence; meaning at his prayers; that he would not be as one deaf and dumb, turning his ears from his cries, and giving no answer to his requests; see Psalms 28:1;
O LORD, be not far from me; meaning not as to his general presence, in which sense he is not far from any, Acts 17:07; but with respect to his gracious presence and appearance to him for help and deliverance; see
