32 He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire in their land.
32 He turned their rain into hail, with lightning throughout their land;
32 He gave them hail for rain, and fiery lightning bolts through their land.
32 He substituted hail for rain, he stabbed their land with lightning;
32 He gave them hail for rain, And flaming fire in their land.
32 He sent them hail instead of rain, and lightning flashed over the land.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Psalm 105:32
Commentary on Psalm 105:24-45
(Read Psalm 105:24-45)
As the believer commonly thrives best in his soul when under the cross; so the church also flourishes most in true holiness, and increases in number, while under persecution. Yet instruments shall be raised up for their deliverance, and plagues may be expected by persecutors. And see the special care God took of his people in the wilderness. All the benefits bestowed on Israel as a nation, were shadows of spiritual blessings with which we are blessed in Christ Jesus. Having redeemed us with his blood, restored our souls to holiness, and set us at liberty from Satan's bondage, he guides and guards us all the way. He satisfies our souls with the bread of heaven, and the water of life from the Rock of salvation, and will bring us safely to heaven. He redeems his servants from all iniquity, and purifies them unto himself, to be a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
