    NOTES - PSALMS 32

    Psalms 31 - Psalms 33 >> - HELP - FACEBOOK - GR FORUMS - GODRULES ON YOUTUBE    




    PS 32 The happiness of them whose sins are forgiven, ver. 1, 2. The necessity of confessing our sins, and of prayer, ver. 3-6. God's promise to them that trust in him, ver. 7-10. An exhortation to rejoice in God, ver. 11. A psalm of David, Maschil. Title of the psalm. Maschil - Or, an instructor. This psalm is fitly so called, because it was composed for the information of the church, in that most important doctrine, the way to true blessedness.

    Verse 2. Imputeth - Whom God doth not charge with the guilt of his sins, but graciously pardons and accepts him in Christ. No guile - Who freely confesses all his sins, and turns from sin to God with all his heart.

    Verse 3. Silence - From a full and open confession of my sins. Old - My spirit failed, and the strength of my body decayed. Roaring - Because of the continual horrors of my conscience, and sense of God's wrath.

    Verse 4. Hand - Thy afflicting hand. My moisture - Was dried up.

    Verse 5. The iniquity - The guilt of my sin.

    Verse 6. For this - Upon the encouragement of my example. Found - In an acceptable and seasonable time, while God continues to offer grace and mercy. Waters - In the time of great calamities. Not come - So as to overwhelm him.

    Verse 8. I will - This and the next verse seems to be the words of God, whom David brings in as returning this answer to his prayers. Mine eye - So Christ did St. Peter, when he turned and looked upon him.

    Verse 9. Will not - Unless they be forced to it by a bit or bridle. And so all the ancient translators understand it.

    Verse 10. Sorrows - This is an argument to enforce the foregoing admonition.
