PSALM LXII. Chapter Overview

David expresses his confidence in God, verse 1-7.
Excites others to trust in him, verse 8-12.
To the chief musician, to Jeduthun. A psalm of David.

Title of the psalm. Jeduthun-A famous musician, 1 Chronicles 9:16.

Verse 3
Ye - Mine enemies; to whom now he turns his speech. Against - Against me, a man like yourselves, whom common humanity obliges you to pity.

Verse 9
Vanity - Vain, and helpless creatures. A lie - They promise much, but generally deceive those who trust in them.

Verse 10
Vain - Feeding yourselves with vain hopes of felicity, from those riches which you take from others by violence.

Verse 11
Spoken - Frequently, both immediately as at Sinai, and by his holy prophets, from time to time. That - That power is God's prerogative; and consequently all creatures, either against or without him, are poor impotent things.

Verse 12
Therefore - God is almighty, therefore he can easily destroy all his enemies: he is also merciful, and therefore will pardon good mens failings. Renderest - And this as he is obliged to do by his holy nature, so is he able to do it, being omnipotent, and willing to do it to the godly (which was the only thing that might be doubted, because of their manifold miscarriages) because he is merciful and gracious.
