Wesley's Notes for Psalms 50:3


50:3 Our God - The prophet speaks this in the persons of the worshippers of God. Though he be our God, yet he will come to execute judgment upon us. Cease - Or delay to sit in judgment. Tempestuous - This is a farther description of that terrible majesty, wherewith God would clothe himself when he came to his tribunal.

    The most High God is days or even hours away from pouring out His wrath on those who continue to deny Him. I thank the LORD JESUS CHRIST for His Spirit and faith that He has bestowed upon me, for His gift of salvation! Verse 21 calls out those who crucified Him, who believe He was merely a man: those who say they are Jews and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. The Father, my Father, will speak as He is risen! Amen
