Psalms 64* Prayer for deliverance. (1-6) The destruction of the wicked,encouragement to the righteous. (7-10)1-6 The psalmist earnestly begs of God to preserve him fromdisquieting fear. The tongue is a little member, but it boastsgreat things. The upright man is the mark at which the wickedaim, they cannot speak peaceably either of him or to him. Thereis no guard against a false tongue. It is bad to do wrong, butworse to encourage ourselves and one another in it. It is a signthat the heart is hardened to the greatest degree, when it isthus fully set to do evil. A practical disbelief of God'sknowledge of all things, is at the bottom of every wickedness.The benefit of a good cause and a good conscience, appears mostwhen nothing can help a man against his enemies, save God alone,who is always a present help. 7-10 When God brings upon men the mischiefs they have desiredon others, it is weight enough to sink a man to the lowest hell.Those who love cursing, it shall come upon them. Those whobehold this shall understand, and observe God's hand in all;unless we do so, we are not likely to profit by thedispensations of Providence. The righteous shall be glad in theLord; not glad of the misery and ruin of their fellow-creatures,but glad that God is glorified, and his word fulfilled, and thecause of injured innocence pleaded effectually. They rejoice notin men, nor in themselves, nor in any creature, or creatureenjoyments, nor in their wisdom, strength, riches, orrighteousness; but in Christ, in whom all the seed of Israel arejustified and glory, and in what he is to them, and has done forthem
