Psalms 136* God to be praised as the Creator of the world. (1-9) AsIsrael's God and Saviour. (10-22) For his blessings to all.(23-26)1-9 Forgetful as we are, things must be often repeated to us.By "mercy" we understand the Lord's disposition to save thosewhom sin has rendered miserable and vile, and all the provisionhe has made for the redemption of sinners by Jesus Christ. Thecounsels of this mercy have been from everlasting, and theeffects of it will endure for ever, to all who are interested init. The Lord continues equally ready to show mercy to all whoseek for it, and this is the source of all our hope and comfort. 10-22 The great things God did for Israel, when he brought themout of Egypt, were mercies which endured long to them; and ourredemption by Christ, which was typified thereby, endures forever. It is good to enter into the history of God's favours, andin each to observe, and own, that his mercy endureth for ever.He put them in possession of a good land; it was a figure of themercy of our Lord Jesus Christ. 23-26 God's everlasting mercy is here praised for theredemption of his church; in all his glories, and all his gifts.Blessed be God, who has provided and made known to us salvationthrough his Son. May we know and feel his redeeming power, thatwe may serve him in righteousness all our days. May He whogiveth food to all flesh, feed our souls unto eternal life, andenliven our affections by his grace, that we may give thanks andpraise to his holy name, for his mercy endureth for ever. Let ustrace up all the favours we receive to this true source, andoffer praise continually
