Chapter: 22

David's psalm of thanksgiving.
- This Chapter is a psalm of praise; we find it afterwards
nearly as Ps 18. They that trust God in the way of duty, shall
find him a present help in their greatest dangers: David did So.
Remarkable preservations should be particularly mentioned in our
praises. We shall never be delivered from all enemies till we
get to Heaven. God will preserve all his people, 2Ti 4:18.
Those who receive signal mercies from God, ought to give him the
Glory. In the Day that God delivered David, he sang this song.
While the Mercy is fresh, and we are most affected with it, let
the thank-Offering be brought, to be kindled with the Fire of
that Affection. All his joys and hopes close, as all our hopes
should do, in the great Redeemer.
