The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BiblePsalms 104:34
My meditation of him shall be sweet…
Of the glories,
excellencies, and perfections of his person; of his offices, as
Mediator, King, Priest, and Prophet, the Saviour and Redeemer; of his
works of creation, providence, and redemption; of his word, the blessed
truths and comfortable doctrines of it; of his providential
dispensations, and gracious dealings with his people in the present
state; which to meditate upon, when grace is in exercise, is very
sweet, delightful, and comfortable. The Targum renders it as a
``let my meditation be sweet before him;''
that is, grateful and acceptable to him: or, as the Septuagint and
Vulgate Latin versions, "let my speech", discourse, colloquy, address
in prayer; see (Psalms 141:2) , or, "let my praise", so the Arabic and
Syriac versions: the spiritual sacrifices both of prayer and praise are
acceptable to God through Christ; and the speech of the church, and
every believer, whether in the one way or the other, is sweet to
Christ, very pleasant and delightful to him, (Song of Solomon 2:14) .
I will be glad in the Lord:
the Targum is,
``in the Word of the Lord;''
in the essential Word, the Lord Jesus Christ; in his person, the
greatness, glory, beauty, and fulness of it; in his righteousness, its
purity, perfection, and perpetuity; in his salvation, being so
suitable, complete, and glorious.
