Psalms 146* Why we should not trust in men. (1-4) Why we should trust inGod. (5-10)1-4 If it is our delight to praise the Lord while we live, weshall certainly praise him to all eternity. With this gloriousprospect before us, how low do worldly pursuits seem! There is aSon of man in whom there is help, even him who is also the Sonof God, who will not fail those that trust in him. But all othersons of men are like the man from whom they sprung, who, beingin honour, did not abide. God has given the earth to thechildren of men, but there is great striving about it. Yet,after a while, no part of the earth will be their own, exceptthat in which their dead bodies are laid. And when man returnsto his earth, in that very day all his plans and designs vanishand are gone: what then comes of expectations from him? 5-10 The psalmist encourages us to put confidence in God. Wemust hope in the providence of God for all we need as to thislife, and in the grace of God for that which is to come. The Godof heaven became a man that he might become our salvation.Though he died on the cross for our sins, and was laid in thegrave, yet his thoughts of love to us did not perish; he roseagain to fulfil them. When on earth, his miracles were examplesof what he is still doing every day. He grants deliverance tocaptives bound in the chains of sin and Satan. He opens the eyesof the understanding. He feeds with the bread of life those whohunger for salvation; and he is the constant Friend of the poorin spirit, the helpless: with him poor sinners, that are asfatherless, find mercy; and his kingdom shall continue for ever.Then let sinners flee to him, and believers rejoice in him. Andas the Lord shall reign for ever, let us stir up each other topraise his holy name
