EXPOSITION

Verse 8. Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honour all the day. What a blessed mouthful! A man never grows nauseated though the flavour of it be all day in his mouth. God's bread is always in our mouths, so should his praise be. He fills us with good; let us be also filled with gratitude. This would leave no room for murmuring or backbiting; therefore, may we well join with holy David in this sacred wish.

 

EXPLANATORY NOTES AND QUAINT SAYINGS

Verse 8. Let my mouth be filled with thy praise. Let my mouth, I say, be so filled with thy praise, that from the bottom of my heart, even to the lips of my mouth, the plenitude of thy grace, O God, infused into my heart, and diffused over my lips, may loyally magnify thee; so shall I not be found like that people, of whom thou dost say: "This people honour me with their lips, but their heart is far from me." Isaiah 29:13. Gerhohus.

 

HINTS FOR PASTORS AND LAYPERSONS

Verse 8.

  1. What? filled with what? -- murmurings? doubts? fears?
    No! Praise. My own? -- of men? No. Thy
    praise. Thy honour.
  2. When? All the day.
    1. The whole day.
    2. Every day; a good preparation for heaven.
