Bible Commentary for Psalms 103:8

Discussion for Psalms 103:8

  • Onyekachukwu Ogechi Levinus Alaka on Psalms 103:8
    And plenteous in mercy. Rich in it, quick in it, overflowing with it; and so had he need to be or we should soon be consumed. He is God, and not man, or our sins would soon drown his love; yet above the mountains of our sins the floods of his mercy rise.

    "Plenteous grace with thee is found,

    Grace to cover all my sin;

    Let the healing streams abound,

    Make and keep me pure within."

    All the world tastes of his sparing mercy, those who hear the gospel partake of his inviting mercy, the saints live by his saving mercy, are preserved by his upholding mercy, are cheered by his consoling mercy, and will enter heaven through his infinite and everlasting mercy. Let grace abounding be our hourly song in the house of our pilgrimage. Let those who feel that they live upon it glorify the plenteous fountain from which it so spontaneously flows.
  • Rob on Psalms 103:8

  • MockingBird on Psalms 103:8
    I Thank God for His Mercy and Grace : without it I would be a hung duck !!! He is slow to anger toward me : He gives me space to repent. Repentance is a 180 degree turn around : I will not do that thing again. Truly His mercy is plenteous !!!
