Psalms 37Fret not - Because they prosper in their wicked enterprizes. Commit - All thy cares and business, and necessities, commend to God by fervent prayer. Judgment - It shall be as visible to men, as the light of the sun, at noon - day. Rest - Do not repine at his dealings, but quietly submit to his will, and wait for his help. Fret not - Either against the sinner for his success; or against God. Do evil - If grief arise in thee, take care that it do not transport thee to sin. The earth - This for the most part was literally fulfilled in that state of the church. Not be - He shall be dead and gone. Diligently - Industriously seeking him. His place - His place and estate, and glory. But - Those who patiently bear God's afflicting hand, and meekly pass by injuries. Peace - Partly of outward peace and prosperity, which God in his due time will give them: but principally of inward peace, in the sense of God's favour and the assurance of endless happiness. His day - The day appointed by God for his punishment or destruction. Knoweth - Observes with care and affection. The days - All things which befal them, their dangers and fears, and suffering. For ever - To them and their seed for ever: and when they die their inheritance is not lost, but exchanged for one infinitely better. Fat - Which in an instant melts before the fire. Established - So that he shall not fall into mischief. Fall - Into trouble. Forsaken - These temporal promises, were more express to the Jews in the times of the Old Testament, than to Christians. Blessed - Not only with spiritual, but with temporal blessings. Dwell - Thou shalt dwell in the land, and afterwards in heaven. The mouth - Having shewed, God's singular care over the righteous, he proceeds to give a character of them. Judgment - Of God's judgment, word or law. Heart - His thoughts, meditations and affections are fixed upon it. Slide - Slide, or swerve, from the rule, from God's law. Bay - tree - Which is continually green and flourishing even in winter. Yet - He was gone in an instant. But - There was no monument or remainder of him left. Peace - Though he may meet with troubles in his way, yet all shall end well. Together - All without exception.
