For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
God's — Above all that are called God's angels, earthly potentates, and especially the false gods of the Heathen.
In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also.
Hand — Under his government.
Strength — The strongest or highest mountains.
For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,
Pasture — Whom he feeds and keeps in his own pasture, or in the land which he hath appropriated to himself.
The sheep — Which are under his special care.
Today — Forthwith or presently.
Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness:
Harden not — By obstinate unbelief.
Provocation — In that bold and wicked contest with God in the wilderness.
Temptation — In the day in which you tempted me.
When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my work.
Works — Both of mercy, and of justice.
Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways:
Do err — Their hearts are insincere and bent to backsliding.
Not known — After all my teaching and discoveries of myself to them; they did not know, nor consider, those great things which I had wrought for them.
Unto whom I sware in my wrath that they should not enter into my rest.
My rest — Into the promised land, which is called the rest, Deuteronomy 12:9.
