PSALM LXXXV. Chapter Overview

A recital of past, and prayer for present mercy, verse 1-7.
A prediction of a favourable answer, verse 8-13.
To the chief musician, A psalm for the sons of Korah.

Verse 1
Captivity - The captives.

Verse 4
Turn us - Restore us to our former tranquillity, and free us from the troubles which we yet groan under.

Verse 6
Revive us - Give us a second reviving in bringing home the rest of our brethren, and in restraining our enemies.

Verse 8
Will hear - Diligently observe. Will speak - What answer God will give to my prayers. Peace - He will give an answer of peace. Saints - Not to all that are called God's people, but only to those who are truly such.

Verse 9
His salvation - That compleat salvation for which all the Israel of God wait; even the redemption by the Messiah; of which not only Christian, but even Jewish writers understand this place; and to which the following passages properly belong. And the psalmist might well say this salvation was nigh, because the seventy weeks determined by Daniel were begun. Glory - The glorious presence of God, and the God of glory himself, even Christ, who is the brightness of his father's glory.

Verse 10
Kissed - That great work of redemption by Christ, shall clearly manifest God's mercy in redeeming his people Israel, and in the conversion of the Gentiles; his truth in fulfilling that great promise of sending his son, his righteousness in punishing sin, on his son, and in conferring righteousness upon guilty and lost creatures; and his peace or reconciliation to sinners, and that peace of conscience which attends upon it.

Verse 11
Truth - Truth among men. Righteousness - And God's justice shall be satisfied: he shall look down upon sinful men with a smiling countenance.

Verse 13
Before him - As his harbinger. He shall fulfil all righteousness, he shall satisfy the righteousness of God, and shall advance righteousness and holiness among men. Set us - Shall cause us to walk in those righteous ways wherein he walketh.
