PSALM CXV. Chapter Overview

We are to give glory to God, not to ourselves or idols, verse 1-8.
By trusting in his promise and blessing, verse 9-15.
And by praising him, verse 16-18.

Verse 8
Are like them - As void of all sense or reason as their images.

Verse 9
Their - Who trust in him.

Verse 10
Aaron - You priests and Levites.

Verse 11
Ye that fear - All of you who worship the true God, not only Israelites, but even Gentile proselytes.

Verse 12
Mindful - In our former straits, and therefore we trust he will still bless us.

Verse 13
Both small - Of whatsoever quality, high and low, rich and poor.

Verse 16
The Lord's - In a peculiar manner, where he dwelleth in that light and glory, to which no man can approach. Given - As the foregoing verse declares, that God was the creator of heaven and earth, so this asserts that he is also their Lord and governor to dispose of all men and things as he pleases.

Verse 17
Silence - Into the place of silence, the grave.
