10 He says, "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Psalm 46:10

Commentary on Psalm 46:6-11

(Read Psalm 46:6-11)

Come and see the effects of desolating judgments, and stand in awe of God. This shows the perfect security of the church, and is an assurance of lasting peace. Let us pray for the speedy approach of these glorious days, and in silent submission let us worship and trust in our almighty Sovereign. Let all believers triumph in this, that the Lord of hosts, the God of Jacob, has been, is, and will be with us; and will be our Refuge. Mark this, take the comfort, and say, If God be for us, who can be against us? With this, through life and in death, let us answer every fear.

2 You say, "I choose the appointed time; it is I who judge with equity.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Psalm 75:2

Commentary on Psalm 75:1-5

(Read Psalm 75:1-5)

We often pray for mercy, when in pursuit of it; and shall we only once or twice give thanks, when we obtain it? God shows that he is nigh to us in what we call upon him for. Public trusts are to be managed uprightly. This may well be applied to Christ and his government. Man's sin threatened to destroy the whole creation; but Christ saved the world from utter ruin. He who is made of God to us wisdom, bids us be wise. To the proud, daring sinners he says, Boast not of your power, persist not in contempt. All the present hopes and future happiness of the human race spring from the Son of God.

3 When the earth and all its people quake, it is I who hold its pillars firm.[1]
