P S A L M S
This psalm calls more for devotion than
exposition; it is a most excellent psalm of praise, and of general
use. The psalmist, I. Stirs up himself and his own soul to praise
God (ver. 1, 2) for his
favour to him in particular (ver.
3-5), to the church in general, and to all good men, to
whom he is, and will be, just, and kind, and constant (ver. 6-18), and for his government
of the world, ver. 19. II.
He desires the assistance of the holy angels, and all the works of
God, in praising him, ver.
20-22. In singing this psalm we must in a special manner
get our hearts affected with the goodness of God and enlarged in
love and thankfulness.
