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.

    we must not worry as the world does. The WORD saids not to lean on our own understanding;but trust in the LORD!!! It works!

    Verse 21 shows that even though God may remain silent while he sees the wickedness today, he is not indifferent and has not lowered his standards over time. God patiently gives people time to repent because he does not want to destroy anyone so we want to make sure we don't mistake his kindness for weakness.
