The Ultimate Cross Reference Treasury:

Psalms 37:7
Rest in. Heb. Be silent to. William Kay notes “The silence is that of tranquil faith which abstains from fretfulness or self-vindication; not, of course, a ceasing from prayer; for prayer is the means by which this calmness of spirit is maintained. Compare the expression in Psa 143:9, ’unto Thee have I hidden;’—hidden all from man self-restrainingly, by revealing all to Thee” (Psalms with Notes, p. 119).
