65:1 (To the chief Musician, A Psalm [and] Song of David.) a Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion: and unto thee shall the vow be performed.

    (a) You daily give new opportunities to your Church to praise you.
65:2 O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all b flesh come.
    (b) Not only the Jews but also the Gentiles in the kingdom of Christ.
65:3 Iniquities c prevail against me: [as for] our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away.
    (c) He imputes it to his sins and to the sins of the people that God who was accustomed to afflict them withdraws his help from them.
65:5 [By] terrible things in righteousness wilt thou d answer us, O God of our salvation; [who art] the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off [upon] the e sea:
    (d) You will declare yourself to be the preserver of your Church in destroying your enemies, as you did in the Red Sea.
    (e) As of all barbarous nations, and far off.
65:7 Which stilleth the f noise of the seas, the noise of their waves, and the tumult of the people.
    (f) He shows that there is no part or creature in the world which is not governed by God's power and providence.
65:9 Thou g visitest the earth, and waterest it: thou greatly enrichest it with the h river of God, [which] is full of water: thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for i it.
    (g) That is, with rain.
    (h) That is, Shiloh or the rain.
    (i) You have appointed the earth to bring forth food to man's use.

65:10 Thou k waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settlest the furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof.

    (k) By this description he shows that all the order of nature is a testimony of God's love toward us, who causes all creatures to serve our need.
65:13 The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, l they also sing.
    (l) That is, the dumb creatures will not only rejoice for a time for God's benefits, but will continually sing.
