To the chief musician upon Neginah, A psalm of David.
2: The end - To which David was driven. Lead me - Convey me
into some high and secure fortress.
4: I will - I shall, I doubt not, be restored to the tabernacle, and
worship thee there all my days.
5: Heritage - Thou hast granted me this singular mercy, to live in
God's land, to enjoy his presence, and to worship in his tabernacle; which
is the heritage that all that fear thee, prize and desire above all things.
6: Prolong - The years of my life and reign. Thus he speaks because
his kingdom was not like Saul's, but established to him and his heirs;
and because Christ, his son and heir, should actually, and in his own
person possess the kingdom for ever.
7: Abide - In the throne. Before God - Living and ruling as in
God's presence, serving God and worshipping him in his tabernacle.
Truth - Thy truth in giving me those mercies which thou hast promised,
and thy mercy in giving me such further blessings as I needs.
