Psalms 75* The psalmist declares his resolution of executing judgment.(1-5) He rebukes the wicked, and concludes with resolutions topraise God. (6-10)1-5 We often pray for mercy, when in pursuit of it; and shallwe only once or twice give thanks, when we obtain it? God showsthat he is nigh to us in what we call upon him for. Publictrusts are to be managed uprightly. This may well be applied toChrist and his government. Man's sin threatened to destroy thewhole creation; but Christ saved the world from utter ruin. Hewho is made of God to us wisdom, bids us be wise. To the proud,daring sinners he says, Boast not of your power, persist not incontempt. All the present hopes and future happiness of thehuman race spring from the Son of God.#6-10. No second causes will raise men to preferment without theFirst Cause. It comes neither from the east, nor from the west,nor from the south. He mentions not the north; the same wordthat signifies the north, signifies the secret place; and fromthe secret of God's counsel it does come. From God alone allmust receive their doom. There are mixtures of mercy and gracein the cup of affliction, when it is put into the hands of God'speople; mixtures of the curse, when it is put into the hands ofthe wicked. God's people have their share in common calamities,but the dregs of the cup are for the wicked. The exaltation ofthe Son of David will be the subject of the saints' everlastingpraises. Then let sinners submit to the King of righteousness,and let believers rejoice in and obey him
