REFLECTIOS AD PRAYERS O PSALMS 76-150BY REV. JOSEPH JOES, M.A.,PSALM LXXVI. 219 and may we, and all Thy people^ declare Thy glorious works, and praise Thee for ever ; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. PSALM LXXVL Thanksgiving, as BMllm xlvi. That Asaph who lived in the time of David might have written this Psalm to celebrate some victory : but some refer it with much probability to the overthrow of Senna- cherib: verses 5, 6. (I. God^s glory in the Church.) 1 In Judah is God known : His ame is great in Israel. 2 In Salem also is His tabernacle^ And His dwelling-place in Zion. (XL The Church's deliverance.) 3 There brake He the arrows of the bow, The shield, and the sword, and the battle. 4 Thou art more glorious and excellent than the mountains of prey. 5 The stout-hearted are spoiled, They have slept their sleep ;
And none of the men of might have found their hands. 6 At Thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, Both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep. (III. A reflection^ 7 Thou, even Thou, art to be feared : And who may stand in Thy sight when once Thou art angry ? S30 PSALM LXXVI. (IV. Effect of the deliverance^ 8 Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from hearen ; The earth feared^ and was still, 9 When God arose to judgment^ To save all the meek of the earth. 10 Surely the wrath of man shall praise Thee : The remainder of wrath shalt Tkou restrsun. (V. ExhortatioTu) 11 Vow, and pay unto the Lord your God ; Let all that be round about Him Bring presents unto Him that ought to be feared.
12 He shall cut off the spirit of princes: He is terrible to the kings of the earth. REFLECTIOS. 1. God is known in every Christian land; but the Church is in an especial manner His dwelling- place : it is there that He meets and blesses His people. 2. Temporal deliverances are from God, and He is to be thankfully acknowledged as their author : but we more especially look to spiritual deliverances. How vain and impious is all opposition to God ! The wisdom of the wise becomes foolishness; and the power of the mighty is found to be utter weakness. 3. The dealings of God ought to fill us with awe and reverence : and as His love and favour are to be sought and delighted in, so is His displeasure to be dreaded. PSALM LXXVI. ^1 4. As we read this Psalm we may think of the over- throw of Sennacherib's army : and in that we see how God maintains the cause of His people, turns the wrath of man to His own glory, and restrains the pas- sions and purposes of the wicked as He pleases. And surely this is a truth full of consolation to the humble believer in this evil world. 5. Kings and princes have great power : but if they abuse it, He who is King of kings will show Himself to be terrible to them by the judgments which He wiU inflict upon them. He, indeed, is that God who ^' ought to be feared " by every one : and they who are wise will stand in awe of Him, pay their vows to
