Psalms 76* The psalmist speaks of God's power. (1-6) All have to fear andto trust in him. (7-12)1-6 Happy people are those who have their land filled with theknowledge of God! happy persons that have their hearts filledwith that knowledge! It is the glory and happiness of a peopleto have God among them by his ordinances. Wherein the enemies ofthe church deal proudly, it will appear that God is above them.See the power of God's rebukes. With pleasure may Christiansapply this to the advantages bestowed by the Redeemer. 7-12 God's people are the meek of the earth, the quiet in theland, that suffer wrong, but do none. The righteous God seems tokeep silence long, yet, sooner or later, he will make judgmentto be heard. We live in an angry, provoking world; we often feelmuch, and are apt to fear more, from the wrath of man. What willnot turn to his praise, shall not be suffered to break out. Hecan set bounds to the wrath of man, as he does to the ragingsea; hitherto it shall come, and no further. Let all submit toGod. Our prayers and praises, and especially our hearts, are thepresents we should bring to the Lord. His name is glorious, andhe is the proper object of our fear. He shall cut off the spiritof princes; he shall slip it off easily, as we slip off a flowerfrom the stalk, or a bunch of grapes from the vine; so the wordsignifies. He can dispirit the most daring: since there is nocontending with God, it is our wisdom, as it is our duty, tosubmit to him. Let us seek his favour as our portion, and commitall our concerns to him
