Wesley's Explanatory Notes
Psalms 28

 

 

Verse 2

Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, when I lift up my hands toward thy holy oracle.

Towards — Towards the holy of holies, because there the ark was; from whence God gave oracular answers to his people.


Verse 3

Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief is in their hearts.

Draw not — Do not drag me; as thou dost these, to execution and destruction.


Verse 5

Because they regard not the works of the LORD, nor the operation of his hands, he shall destroy them, and not build them up.

Regard not — The providential works of God towards his people.


Verse 7

The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.

I am helped — He speaks of it as past, because God assured him by his spirit, that he had heard and accepted his prayers.
