The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BiblePsalms 66:5
Come and see the works of God…
Of the Messiah, God
manifest in the flesh; those divine works which he did when here on
earth; his miraculous works, which were proofs of his deity and
Messiahship; his preaching the Gospel, in so divine a manner as never
man did; his works of obedience to the law, which were pure and
perfect; the everlasting righteousness he wrought out for the
justification of his people; and the great work of redemption and
salvation finished by him, which none but God could ever have effected.
This is an invitation to the inhabitants of all lands, where the Gospel
should come with power, to take notice of and consider these works of
Christ, and the glory of his might, wisdom, and grace in them, in order
to engage them to sing his praise;
[he is] terrible [in his] doing toward the children of men;
vengeance on the Jews, for disbelieving and rejecting him; in
destroying antichrist, and pouring out the vials of his wrath on the
antichristian states; and in the everlasting damnation of the wicked.
So that as his other works in the former clause design these of grace,
this doing of his respects his work, his strange work of judgment on
his enemies; on account of which he is terrible to them, and reverenced
by his people.
