A psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.
1: Early - Heb. in the morning, Which implies the doing it with
diligence and speed. Thirsteth - For the enjoyment of thee in thy house
and ordinances. Flesh - The desire of my soul, is so vehement, that my
very body feels the effects of it. No water - In a land where I want the
refreshing waters of the sanctuary.
2: To see - To enjoy. Power - The powerful and glorious effects of
thy gracious presence.
5: Satisfied - When thou shalt fulfil my earnest desire of enjoying
thee in the sanctuary.
9: Shall go - Into the grave.
10: Foxes - Their carcases shall become a prey to wild and ravenous
11: The king - I who am already anointed king. Every one - That
sweareth by the name of God, in truth, and judgment, and righteousness.
Every sincere servant and worshipper of God. Shall glory - Shall rejoice
in my deliverance.
