PSALM XXV. Chapter Overview

David distrest, takes refuge in God, verse 1-7.
Shews the goodness of God to them that fear him, verse 8-15.
Prays for help against his enemies, and for the church, verse 16-22.
A psalm of David.

Verse 2
Ashamed - Disappointed of my hope.

Verse 3
Cause - Without any provocation of mine.

Verse 4
Teach - Teach me my duty, and cause me to keep close to it, notwithstanding all temptations.

Verse 8
Upright - Holy and true, in all his declarations and offers of mercy to sinners. Therefore - He will not be wanting to such poor sinners as I am, but will guide them into the way of life and peace.

Verse 9
The meek - Such as meekly submit themselves to God, and are desirous to be directed and governed by him. Judgment - In the paths of judgment, in the right way.

Verse 10
Paths - All the dealings of God with them, yea even those that are afflictive, are done in kindness and faithfulness to them.

Verse 11
For - Or, though (as this particle is often rendered) it be great. Possibly he speaks of his sin against Uriah and Bathsheba. Great - Or, much or manifold. For the Hebrew word signifies both great and much.

Verse 12
Chuse - Which God appointeth.

Verse 13
At ease - Heb. in Good; in the possession and enjoyment of the true good. The land - Canaan; which was given as an earnest of the whole Covenant of Grace, and all its promises.

Verse 14
The secret - His love and favour, which is called his secret, Job 29:4; Proverbs 3:32, because it is known to none but him that enjoyeth it. Will shew - He will make them clearly to understand it, both its duties and its blessings; neither of which ungodly men rightly understand.

Verse 15
Pluck - He will deliver me out of all my troubles.

Verse 20
Soul - My life.

Verse 22
Israel - If thou wilt not help me, yet spare thy people who suffer for my sake, and in my sufferings.
