So how the second line connect with the first?
All your commands are reliable.
I am pursued without reason. Help me! (NET)
And in what sense is a command reliable?

I suppose a command is only as reliable as the one giving the command. As for the first part, I suppose the frustration would be the difficulty of reconciling how doing good leads to being treated wrongfully. Followed by a request of the good commander for help due to the psalmist’s view of the said commander’s commands.
I wondered if the reliability of the commands refers to the promises attached to them.
I don’t know. Perhaps both. Verses 89-90 seems to lean toward the emphasis of the one “settling” the word/commandment/law. Verses 92-93 seem to lean toward what you’re saying. I don’t think either view damages the other. The trustworthiness of God’s word definitely seems to be the point.
After initially reading your question my mind was thinking more along the lines of someone being able to “promise” you the moon, but that doesn’t mean they can deliver on it. With God it is a much different story.
