15 But judgment unto righteousness
shall yet return again ; And all shall follow after it,
that are right-hearted men. 16 Who will rise up for me, against
those that do wickedly? Who will stand up for me, 'gainst those
that work iniquity ?
When I was sore opprest,
of silence been at rest.
(my foot doth slip away,)
thy goodness did me stay.
which in my heart do fight, My soul, lest it be overcharg'd,
thy comforts do delight. 20 Shall of iniquity the throne
have fellowship with thee, Which mischief, cunningly contriv’d,
doth by a law decree ? 21 Against the righteous souls they join,
they guiltless blood condemn. R2 But of my refuge God's the rock,
and my defence from them. . 23 On them their own iniquity
the Lord shall bring and lay, And cut them off in their own sin ;
our Lord God shall them slay.
This Psalm contains, (1) Sulemn calls to celebrate the praises of Jesus and his father, on account of whạt ho liad done, and what he is to us, and we to him; ver. I -7. (2) Alarming warnings to hear his voice, and not to harden our hearts, as the Israelites in the ciesert, who on that account were debarred from the promised land; ver. 7-il. .
While I sing, let me behold the glories of my Re.deemer, and believe my new covenant relation to him ; and while it is yet called to day, let me be ware of being hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
Since there is a promise left me of entering into his rest, let me take heed, lest I should seem to come short of it, by unbelief.
COME, let us sing to the Lord :

the strength of hills is his.
for he the same did make :

our Maker let us fall.

of his own pasture are,

of the tentation : 9 When me your fathers tempt'd and prov'd,
and did my working see ;
this race hath grieved me :
my ways they do not know :
my rest they should not go.
This Psalm was part of the hymn sung at the translation of the ark from the house of Obed-edom to the city of David ; 1 Chron. xvi. 1. 22–33, but relates to the calling of the Gentiles to our Redeemer. Here are, (1) Solemn calls to ascribe praises and glory to our high and great Immanuel; ver. 1-9. (2) Loud proclamations of Jesus' establishment of his gospel church, and of his coming to judge the world, to the great joy of his fiends; ver. 10–13.
While these high praises of God are in my mouth, let my heart behold the glory, believe the promises, and burn with desire after the enjoyment of Christ, and of God in him.

O do the Lord adore :

This Psalm is of the same strain with the preceding; and contains, (1) Solemn calls to the Gentile nations to rejoice at the equity and extent of Jesus' new testament kingdom, and at the destruction of hardened Jews and heathen idolaters, occasioned by the establishment thereof; ver. 1-7.(2) Representations of the pure and holy joy of the saints, on account of Jesus' highness, the glory of God manifested therein, and of the care taken for their safety and comfort ; ver. 8–12.
Join the choir, O my soul. Sing praises to thy King; sing praises with understanding.
M oD reigneth ; let the earth be glad,

it burns up round about. 4 His lightnings lighten did the world ;
earth saw, and shook throughout 5 Hills at the presence of the Lord,
like wax did melt away :
of all the orth, I say.
