Verse 9. From the glory of his power - Tremble, ye stout-hearted. Everlasting destruction - As there can be no end of their sins, (the same enmity against God continuing,) so neither of their punishment; sin and its punishment running parallel throughout eternity itself. They must of necessity, therefore, be cut off from all good, and all possibility of it. From the presence of the Lord - Wherein chiefly consists the salvation of the righteous. What unspeakable punishment is implied even in falling short of this, supposing that nothing more were implied in his taking vengeance!
Verse 10. To be glorified in his saints - For the wonderful glory of Christ shall shine in them.
Verse 11. All the good pleasure of his goodness - Which is no less than perfect holiness.
Verse 12. That the name - The love and power of our Lord may be glorified - Gloriously displayed in you.
