Psalms 82* An exhortation to judges. (1-5) The doom of evil rulers. (6-8)1-5 Magistrates are the mighty in authority for the publicgood. Magistrates are the ministers of God's providence, forkeeping up order and peace, and particularly in punishingevil-doers, and protecting those that do well. Good princes andgood judges, who mean well, are under Divine direction; and badones, who mean ill, are under Divine restraint. The authority ofGod is to be submitted to, in those governors whom hisprovidence places over us. But when justice is turned from whatis right, no good can be expected. The evil actions of publicpersons are public mischiefs. 6-8 It is hard for men to have honour put upon them, and not tobe proud of it. But all the rulers of the earth shall die, andall their honour shall be laid in the dust. God governs theworld. There is a righteous God to whom we may go, and on whomwe may depend. This also has respect to the kingdom of theMessiah. Considering the state of affairs in the world, we haveneed to pray that the Lord Jesus would speedily rule over allnations, in truth, righteousness, and peace
