94:1 O LORD God, to whom a vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom
vengeance belongeth, b shew thyself.
(a) Whose office it is to take vengeance on the wicked.
94:3 LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked
(b) Show by effect that you are judge of the world to
punish the wicked.
(c) That is, brag of their cruelty and oppression, or
esteem themselves above all others.
94:5 They d break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and afflict
(d) Seeing the Church was then so sore oppressed, it ought
not to seem strange to us, if we see it so now, and
therefore we must call to God, to take our cause in
94:7 e Yet they say, The LORD shall not see, neither shall the
God of Jacob regard [it].
(e) He shows that they are desperate in malice, as they did
not fear God, but gave themselves wholly to do
94:9 He that f planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that
formed the eye, shall he not see?
(f) He shows that it is impossible, but God should hear,
see, and understand their wickedness.
94:10 He that chastiseth the g heathen, shall not he correct?
he that teacheth man knowledge, [shall not he know]?
(g) If God punishes whole nations for their sins, it is
mere folly for any one man or else a few to think that
God will spare them.
94:12 Blessed [is] the man whom thou h chastenest, O LORD, and
teachest him out of thy law;
(h) God has care over his, and chastised them for their
own good, that they should not perish for ever with
94:15 But i judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all
the upright in heart shall follow it.
(i) God will restore the state and government of things to
their right use, and then the godly will follow him
94:17 Unless the LORD [had been] my k help, my soul had almost
dwelt in silence.
(k) He complains of them who would not help him to resist
the enemies, yet was assured that God's help would not
94:18 When I said, l My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held
(l) When I thought there was no way but death.
94:19 In the multitude of my m thoughts within me thy comforts
delight my soul.
(m) In my trouble and distress I always found your present
94:20 Shall the throne of iniquity have n fellowship with
thee, which frameth mischief by a law?
(n) Though the wicked judges pretend justice in oppressing
the Church, yet they do not have the authority of God.
94:23 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall
o cut them off in their own wickedness; [yea], the LORD
our God shall cut them off.
(o) It is a great token of God's judgment when the purpose
of the wicked is broken, but most, when they are
destroyed in their own malice.
