Wesley's Notes for Psalms 36:9


36:9 Life - It is in God as in a fountain, and from him is derived to us. But - Of that glorious and blessed, and endless life, which alone is worthy of the name. Light - In the light of thy glorious presence, which shall be fully manifested, when we see thee face to face. Light - Joy and comfort, and happiness: the word light is elegantly repeated in another signification; in the former clause it is light discovering, in this light, discovered or enjoyed.


Discussion for Psalms 36:9

  • Christopher for verse 9
    There are many messages an ideals in the world, both mine and yours, and many of them different. I wish all messages were this clear, and understood. Without our willful acceptance of this, we truely are lost. By acknowledging something greater than ourselves, may we see. Like light, it can be hidden or blocked, but it remains there. I hope you know it is always there, so long as you remain vigilant. God is referred to as the Everlasting Light, and though we as mortals can diminish, if we choose, can help spread that Light to others. Hope, Love, and Understanding.
