Psalms 108

* David complains of his enemies. (1-5) He prophesies their

destruction. (6-20) Prayers and praises. (21-31)

#1-5. It is the unspeakable comfort of all believers, that

whoever is against them, God is for them; and to him they may

apply as to one pleased to concern himself for them. David's

enemies laughed at him for his devotion, but they could not

laugh him out of it.6-20 The Lord Jesus may speak here as a Judge, denouncing

sentence on some of his enemies, to warn others. When men reject

the salvation of Christ, even their prayers are numbered among

their sins. See what hurries some to shameful deaths, and brings

the families and estates of others to ruin; makes them and

theirs despicable and hateful, and brings poverty, shame, and

misery upon their posterity: it is sin, that mischievous,

destructive thing. And what will be the effect of the sentence,

"Go, ye cursed," upon the bodies and souls of the wicked! How it

will affect the senses of the body, and the powers of the soul,

with pain, anguish, horror, and despair! Think on these things,

sinners, tremble and repent.
