Psalms 79:5

How long, Lord, wilt thou be angry? for ever?
&c.] That is, how long wilt thou be angry? shall it be for ever? see (Psalms 85:4,5) , for though what was done, or to be done, as before related, was or will be done by the enemies of the Lord's people, yet by his permission, and as a token of his anger and displeasure against them: at least it might be so understood, both by them and by their enemies; and hence this expostulation,

shall thy jealousy burn like fire?
so jealousy does; its coals are coals of fire, (Song of Solomon 8:6) , there were, at the times referred to, such among the people, who did evil things, and provoked the Lord to jealousy and wrath: see the Apocrypha:

``And there was very great wrath upon Israel.'' (1 Maccabees 1:64)

``When this was done, and they had made a common supplication, they besought the merciful Lord to be reconciled with his servants for ever.'' (2 Maccabees 8:29)
