Psalms 125* The security of the righteous. (1-3) Prayer for them, The ruinof the wicked. (4,5)1-3 All those minds shall be truly stayed, that are stayed onGod. They shall be as Mount Zion, firm as it is; a mountainsupported by providence, much more as a holy mountain supportedby promise. They cannot be removed from confidence in God. Theyabide for ever in that grace which is the earnest of theireverlasting continuance in glory. Committing themselves to God,they shall be safe from their enemies. Even mountains maymoulder and come to nothing, and rocks be removed, but God'scovenant with his people cannot be broken, nor his care of themcease. Their troubles shall last no longer than their strengthwill bear them up under them. The rod of the wicked may come,may fall upon the righteous, upon their persons, their estates,their liberties, their families names, on any thing that fallsto their lot; only it cannot reach their souls. And though itmay come upon their lot, it shall not rest thereon. The Lordwill make all work together for their good. The wicked shallonly prove a correcting rod, not a destroying sword; even thisrod shall not remain upon them, lest they distrust the promise,thinking God has cast them off. 4,5 God's promises should quicken our prayers. The way ofholiness is straight; there are no windings or shiftings in it.But the ways of sinners are crooked. They shift from one purposeto another, and turn hither and thither to deceive; butdisappointment and misery shall befal them. Those who cleave tothe ways of God, though they may have trouble in their way,their end shall be peace. The pleading of their Saviour forthem, secures to them the upholding power and preserving graceof their God. Lord, number us with them, in time, and toeternity
