The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire Bible

Psalms 74:17

Thou hast set all the borders of the earth
Of the whole world, and each of the nations, as of the land of Canaan, so of others, (Deuteronomy 32:8) , and even has fixed and settled the bounds of every man's habitation, (Acts 17:26) ,

thou hast made summer and winter;
see (Genesis 8:22) , which, taken literally, are great benefits to the world; and, figuratively understood, may represent the two dispensations of the law and Gospel; see (Song of Solomon 2:11,12) , and the different frames of God's people when under temptations, and clouds, and darkness, and when they enjoy peace and comfort; and the different state of the church, when affected with affliction, persecution, false doctrine, deadness, and formality, which is now greatly the case; but there is a summer coming, when it will be otherwise; see (Luke 21:30,31) .
