The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BiblePsalms 118:28
Thou [art] my God, and I will praise thee…
These are the
words of David, asserting his interest in God as his covenant God; and
which is the great blessing of the covenant, and the greatest happiness
of men, and will always continue; and for which there is abundant
reason for praise: it is an instance of distinguishing grace, all
evidence or everlasting love, and the foundation of all comfort and
happiness here and hereafter;
[thou art] my God, one will exalt thee;
in my heart, and with my lips;
and call upon others to join with me in it, as in (Psalms 118:29) . The
``thou art my God, and I will confess before thee; thou art my
God, and I will praise thee, said David: Samuel replied, and
said, Praise, O ye congregation of Israel;''
who are addressed in the next words.
