SEV Biblia, Chapter 23:2 En lugares de delicados pastos me hará yacer; junto a aguas de reposo me pastoreará.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Psalms 22:2 Verse 2. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures ] aŤd twanb binoth deshe, not green pastures, but cottages of turf or sods, such as the shepherds had in open champaign countries; places in which themselves could repose safely; and pens thus constructed where the flock might be safe all the night. They were enclosures, and enclosures where they had grass or provender to eat.
Beside the still waters. ] Deep waters, that the strongest heat could not exhale; not by a rippling current, which argues a shallow stream. Or perhaps he may here refer to the waters of Siloam, or Shiloah, that go sof tly, Isa. viii. 6, compared with the strong current of the Euphrates. Thou hast brought us from the land of our captivity, from beyond this mighty and turbulent river, to our own country streams, wells, and fountains, where we enjoy peace, tranquillity, and rest.
The old Psalter gives this a beautiful turn: "On the water of rehetyng forth he me broght." On the water of grace er we broght forth, that makes to recover our strengthe that we lost in syn. "And reheteis" (strengthens) us to do gude workes. "My saule he turned, that es, of a synful wreche, he made it ryghtwis, and waxyng of luf in mekeness. First he turnes our sautes til hym; and then he ledes and fedes it. Ten graces he telles in this psalme, the qwilk God gyfs til his lufers, (i.e., them that love him.)
Matthew Henry Commentary Confidence in God's grace and care.
--"The Lord is my shepherd." In these words, the believer is taught to express his satisfaction in the care of the great Pastor of the universe, the Redeemer and Preserver of men. With joy he reflects tha he has a shepherd, and that shepherd is Jehovah. A flock of sheep gentle and harmless, feeding in verdant pastures, under the care of skilful, watchful, and tender shepherd, forms an emblem of believer brought back to the Shepherd of their souls. The greatest abundance i but a dry pasture to a wicked man, who relishes in it only what please the senses; but to a godly man, who by faith tastes the goodness of God in all his enjoyments, though he has but little of the world, it is green pasture. The Lord gives quiet and contentment in the mind whatever the lot is. Are we blessed with the green pastures of the ordinances, let us not think it enough to pass through them, but let u abide in them. The consolations of the Holy Spirit are the still water by which the saints are led; the streams which flow from the Fountai of living waters. Those only are led by the still waters of comfort who walk in the paths of righteousness. The way of duty is the trul pleasant way. The work of righteousness in peace. In these paths we cannot walk, unless. God lead us into them, and lead us on in them Discontent and distrust proceed from unbelief; an unsteady walk is the consequence: let us then simply trust our Shepherd's care, and hearke to his voice. The valley of the shadow of death may denote the mos severe and terrible affliction, or dark dispensation of providence that the psalmist ever could come under. Between the part of the floc on earth and that which is gone to heaven, death lies like a dar valley that must be passed in going from one to the other. But even in this there are words which lessen the terror. It is but the shadow of death: the shadow of a serpent will not sting, nor the shadow of sword kill. It is a valley, deep indeed, and dark, and miry; but valleys are often fruitful, and so is death itself fruitful of comfort to God's people. It is a walk through it: they shall not be lost in this valley, but get safe to the mountain on the other side. Death is king of terrors, but not to the sheep of Christ. When they come to die God will rebuke the enemy; he will guide them with his rod, and sustai them with his staff. There is enough in the gospel to comfort the saints when dying, and underneath them are the everlasting arms. The Lord's people feast at his table, upon the provisions of his love Satan and wicked men are not able to destroy their comforts, while the are anointed with the Holy Spirit, and drink of the cup of salvatio which is ever full. Past experience teaches believers to trust that the goodness and mercy of God will follow them all the days of their lives and it is their desire and determination, to seek their happiness in the service of God here, and they hope to enjoy his love for ever in heaven. While here, the Lord can make any situation pleasant, by the anointing of his Spirit and the joys of his salvation. But those tha would be satisfied with the blessings of his house, must keep close to the duties of it __________________________________________________________________
