Psalms 92

Morgan's Exposition on the Whole BibleMorgan's Exposition

Verses 1-15

THIS is a song of praise. The seemliness of praise is first declared (vv. Psa 92:1-3 ); and then reasons for it are given (vv. Psa 92:4-15 ). Praise is good as the first exercise of the day and also as the last. Lovingkindness in the morning, the sense of all the provision made for us as we face the responsibilities and conflicts of the day. Faithfulness at night, the conviction that Jehovah has been true to His covenant, through all the hours of need.

The song proceeds to rejoice first in that general and wholly beneficent government of God, whereby the wicked are dealt with in judgement. That is a weak and perilous tenderness which permits evil to continue its work of destruction. That is a strong and tender pity which without relenting, smites evil, and destroys it.

The song ends with a gracious description of the growth and perennial freshness of the righteous. Such, planted in the courts of God will flourish and grow, and yet know no senility - age with all its wealth of experience and fruitage, but with no failing or weakness.
