Discussion for Psalms 40:16

  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 16
    Let such as seek Thee rejoice and be glad in Thee. Let such as love thy salvation, say continually the Lord be magnified. King David waited patiently for the Lord, and He delivered him from the pit. He preached righteousness in the great congregation. Though this Psalm is about the Lord Jesus Christ, as it is written in the volume of the book, “Lo a body thou has given me, I delight to do thy will.” Jesus went to the cross to pay our sin debt, and rose the third day for our justification. Jesus will sing in the great congregation of His brothers. Thank God we can sing to the glory of God for all that He has done for us. Tell someone about the love of God, and share your bread with the poor and the needy.
