Psalms 107Gathered - Into their own land. No city - Or rather, no town inhabited, where they might refresh themselves. The Lord - Heb. Unto Jehovah, to the true God. For the Heathens had, many of them, some knowledge of the true God. Forth - Out of the wilderness. Darkness - In dark prisons or dungeons. Heart - The pride and obstinacy of their hearts. Fell - They fell into hopeless miseries. Afflicted - With sickness. Word - His command, or blessing. Exalt him - In public assemblies, and before all persons, as they have opportunity. Elders - The magistrates or rulers; let them not be ashamed nor afraid to speak of God's wonderful works, before the greatest of men. Rivers - Those grounds which are well watered, and therefore fruitful. And so the water - springs, here, and the standing water, ver.35 are taken. Into - Into a dry ground, which is like a parched and barren wilderness. For - He doth not inflict these judgments without cause, but for the punishment of sin in some, and the prevention of it in others. Water - Into a well - watered and fruitful land. Hungry - Poor people who could not provide for themselves. They - These men, who when they are exalted by God, grow insolent and secure. Low - By God's just judgment. Contempt - Renders them despicable. Wander - Banishes them from their own courts and kingdoms, and forces them to flee into desolate wildernesses for shelter.
