F.B. Meyer's 'Through the Bible' Commentary
Psalms 92

 

 

Verses 1-15

GLADNESS AND GROWTH

Psalms 92:1-15

The inscription alludes to the suitability of this psalm for the Sabbath day. Psalms 92:1-3 contain the general statement of the desirability of praise and thanksgiving. Psalms 92:4-5 suggest that God’s work in creation, providence, and grace should elicit perpetual thanksgiving; but that the thoughts and purposes which underlie them are too deep for our fathoming.

Two classes of men are here mentioned: the brutish and wicked, Psalms 92:6-9; the servants of God, Psalms 92:10-15. The former are like grass, which soon grows to maturity and is then cut down; the latter are as the palm and cedar. There is no part of the palm which is not utilized in some way. The cedar is one of the largest of living trees. A thousand years is no uncommon duration, and its fiber is practically incorruptible.

The witness of an aged saint to the faithfulness of God is very delightful. When Charles H. Spurgeon was a young man, he was preaching upon this subject in his grandfather’s pulpit. Halfway through the sermon, the veteran man of God advanced to the front and said, “My grandson is preaching what he has read and heard about; but I have proved for eighty-four years that God is faithful to His servants and true to His Word.”
