To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. Behold here, (1.) David, tempted by his timorous friends to escape to some mountain, and hide himself from the fury of Saul, or of Absalom, as if that were his only safe course now when his enemies were exerting themselves to the uttermost, and all things were in disorder and confusion, ver. 1-3. (2.) David baffling the temptation by a resolute profession of his trust in God, as the observer of all men; as the holy and righteous punisher of the wicked, and friend of the godly, ver. 4-7. Let no temptation decoy me from my duty. Let no danger deter me from it. While Jehovah, my reconciled God and Father, manageth and judgeth the world, my safest course is to commit myself to him in well-doing. Let the just vengeance of God upon sinners deter my heart from sinning, and his kindness to his people encourage me to holiness in all manner of conversation. 1 I in the Lord do put my trust: how is it then that ye Say to my soul, Flee, as a bird, unto your mountain high? 2 For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, their shafts on string they fit, That those who upright are in heart they privily may hit. 3 If the foundations be destroy'd, what hath the righteous done? 4 God in his holy temple is, in heaven is his throne: His eyes do see, his eye-lids try 5 men's sons. The just he proves: But his soul hates the wicked man, and him that vi'lence loves. 6 Snares, fire and brimstone, furious storms, on sinners he shall rain: This, as the portion of their cup, doth unto them pertain. 7 Because the Lord most righteous doth in righteousness delight; And with a pleasant countenance beholdeth the upright.
