EXPOSITION

Verse 15. But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave. Forth from that temporary resting place we shall come in due time, quickened by divine energy. Like our risen Head we cannot be holden by the bands of the grave; redemption has emancipated us from the slavery of death. No redemption could man find in riches, but God has found it in the blood of his dear Son. Our Elder Brother has given to God a ransom, and we are the redeemed of the Lord: because of this redemption by price we shall assuredly be redeemed by power out of the hand of the last enemy. For he shall receive me. He shall take me out of the tomb, take me up to heaven. If it is not said of me as of Enoch, "He was not, for God took him," yet shall I reach the same glorious state. My spirit God will receive, and my body shall sleep in Jesus till, being raised in his image, it shall also be received into glory. How infinitely superior is such a hope to anything which our oppressors can boast! Here is something which will bear meditation, and therefore again let us pause, at the bidding of the musician, who inserts a Selah.

 

EXPLANATORY NOTES AND QUAINT SAYINGS

Verse 15. (last clause). For he shall take me. This short half verse is, as Bottcher remarks, the more weighty, from its very shortness. The same expression occurs again, Psalms 73:24, "Thou shalt take me," the original of both being Genesis 5:24, where it is used of the translation of Enoch, "He was not, for God took him." J. J. Stewart Perowne.

 

HINTS FOR PASTORS AND LAYPERSONS

Verse 15.

  1. Return to the dust I shall.
  2. Redeem from the dust he will.
  3. Receive into heaven he will.
  4. Rejoice for ever I shall.
