Wesley's Notes for Psalms 41:9


41:9 Yea - These words were literally fulfilled in David, and yet the Holy Ghost looked farther in them, even to Christ and Judas, in whom they received a fuller accomplishment. Lift up - A phrase implying injury, joined with insolency and contempt; taken from an unruly horse, which kicks at him that owns and feeds him.

    The first verse always reminds me of what God says; that we will have poor among us always. I know that God will bless those who show compassion for the poor.
