F.B. Meyer's 'Through the Bible' Commentary

Psalms 141

Verses 1-10


Psalms 141:1-10

This is an evening psalm. Acceptable prayer is as the smoke of incense rising in the still air, Revelation 5:8 ; Revelation 8:3-4 . Each day we should ask to be delivered from lip sins, life sins, and like sins-especially the last, the dainties of appetite and desire, Psalms 141:4 .

We owe a great deal to the care of fellow-believers. It may take more love to smite than to soothe. The breaking of the box of precious ointment over our heads may cause a momentary shock; but we must not refuse it, since the contents are so salutary; and we can return their well-meant kindness by praying for the righteous when their calamities are multiplied, Psalms 141:5 . It was a rough time for David, but he kept looking up and committing his soul to God’s faithful care. Under similar circumstances Paul struck an even higher note, Romans 8:36-37 . Go on patiently living up to your ideal. God will surely vindicate you!
