|<< Psalm 92 >>|
Wesley's Notes on the Bible
1 IT IS A GOOD THING TO GIVE THANKS UNTO THE LORD, AND TO SING PRAISES UNTO THY NAME, O MOST HIGH:
2 To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,
3 Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.
4 For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.
5 O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.
92:5 Thoughts - Thy counsels in the government of the world and of thy church.
6 A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.
92:6 A brutish man - Who is led by sense, not by reason and faith. This - The depth of God's counsels and works.
7 When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:
8 But thou, LORD, art most high for evermore.
9 For, lo, thine enemies, O LORD, for, lo, thine enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
10 But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.
92:10 Anointed - I shall have cause of testifying my joy by anointing myself, as the manner was at all joyful solemnities.
11 Mine eye also shall see my desire on mine enemies, and mine ears shall hear my desire of the wicked that rise up against me.
12 The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
92:12 Palm - tree - Which is constantly green and flourishing.
13 Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.
92:13 Planted - Whom God by his gracious providence has fixed there. The house - In its courts; he means in the church of God, whereof all good men are living members.
14 They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;
92:14 Old age - Their last days shall be their best days, wherein they shall grow in grace, and increase in blessedness.
15 To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
