Bible Commentary for Psalms 68:19

Wesley's Notes for Psalms 68:19

68:17 Chariots - The armies (whereof chariots were an eminent part in those times) which attend upon God to do his pleasure. Twenty thousand - An innumerable company, a certain number being put for an uncertain. Among them - Here the psalmist seems to be transported by the prophetic spirit, from the narration of those external successes, to the prediction of the Messiah; and of the transcendent privileges and blessings accruing to mankind thereby. As in Sinai - God is no less gloriously, though less terribly present here, than he was in Sinai, when the great God attended with thousands of his angels, solemnly appeared to deliver the law. Yea, here is a greater privilege than Sinai had, The Lord Jehovah descending from heaven into an human body, as appears by his ascending thither again, which the next verse describes.

68:18 Ascended - This has a manifest reference to Christ, and his ascension into heaven, in whom alone it is literally accomplished, and to whom therefore it is ascribed, #Eph 4:8|. Although the expressions are borrowed from the ancient custom of princes, who, after some glorious achievements, used to go up into their royal cities in triumphant chariots, being attended by their captive enemies, and afterward to distribute gifts to their soldiers and subjects, and sometimes to do some acts of clemency even to their rebels and enemies. Captivity - Those whom thou hast taken captive; death and sin, and the devil, and all the enemies of Christ, and of his people, whom Christ led in triumph, having spoiled them, and making a shew of them openly, #Col 2:15|. Received - According to thy manhood thou hast received from God all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge, and all those gifts and graces of the Holy Spirit, which are necessary either to the perfection of thy nature, or to the good of thy church and people. Rebellious - Thy most stubborn and rebellious enemies, whether Jews or Gentiles. Might dwell - That he who as man is ascended into the highest heavens, might, as God, come down to them, and dwell with them, not only in and by his ordinances in which he is present, but also by his spirit dwelling in their hearts.

68:20 Issues - Escapes or deliverances.

68:21 Hairy - In ancient times many people used to wear long and shaggy hair, that their looks might be more terrible to their enemies.

    What an assurance..... Knowing that daily my father has a package for me. Daily, I am entitled to something from my father. So glad I have a father that I can depend on.
  • Ogazi Daniel on Psalms 68:19
    What an assurance.....
  • Brianna on Psalms 68:19
    This scripture is very comforting. I can really relate to Lenesha 's comment. I have a Job, but it has become too demanding that it is actually encroaching on my time to serve Jehovah fully. SO I too am throwing this burden on God, to help to find suitable employment. I don 't want to move on my own initiative, but I keep this in prayer relying on Jehovah to make the best decision. I can have confidence that Jehovah is carrying this burden, and many others.
  • Lenesha on Psalms 68:19
    I love my beauitful God with all my heart and I been praying for a job for about 4 years and me using my brain and not my heart or faith thinking God was not hearing me or understanding me when I was wrong the whole time because the lord moves on his own time and with the power of prayer and belief he showd me that all things are possible threw Christ Jesus and blessed me whith a job so I want to take this time to praise His holy name thank you Jesus and I will make sure I pray 3 times a day or more amen. Faith is the key, belief is the door and God is the Father Son and the Holy Spirit
  • Opeyemi on Psalms 68:19
    to know that God daily supply all my needs gladens my heart and give me rest on all sides and because of this truth,i wake up daily believing God to come through for me all day long and sincerely He has never fail and can never fail.
  • Joke Roberts on Psalms 68:19
    Psalm 68:19 is an ***urance of God' s abundant love provisions,preservation etc to His children. Waking up in the morning with this provision builds confidence in me in navigating the course of the without struggle knowing that the day has been taken care of by my Father, my own responsibility is to actualise the benefits to the glory of God.
  • Chocoberry on Psalms 68:19
    Ps 68;19......reassures us that God is always there for. His love,mercy,grace and blessings are forevermore Amen.
  • Christine Akoko on Psalms 68:19
    Praise be to God for his wonderful love, for he loads us every day and thank him for seeing another bright day this is one of the greatest blessings I always receive from God.
  • Ruth on Psalms 68:19
    hmm loaded with blessings seems more blithely understood by me at leastthan bearing our burdens. God is good, this is paramount, but being loaded with blessings, i dare say this sounds lovely, and yet how wholly unmerited
  • Bonner on Psalms 68:19
    Shouldn't this always be the song of a Christian's heart? This verse is a statement of thankfulness toward God for both His common and saving grace. The verse begins with "Blessed be the LORD!", the prayer of a soul who realizes that he has received blessing from God and therefore wants to return a blessing to his blessed Lord.
    The Psalmist does not leave his blessing unqualified; he praises God's daily provision. "[W]ho daily loadeth us with benefits." I absolutely love the verb used here: loadeth. Do we think of God LOADING us with benefits? Think of a mother heaping as much food as will fit onto her growing son's plate, or a generous grandmother filling her beloved grandchild's arms with toys and delights at Christmas. Our God is not stingy; He has not merely begrudged us our daily needs. He has provided for all people in abundance, without restraint. He LOADETH us with benefits. What a generous Father!
    Continuing, we see that this God not only showers us with temporal blessings, what we might term "common grace," He is "the God of our salvation." What a marvelous concept; that the LORD of all creation, the great and terrible Ruler of the heavens, we may call the God of our salvation! He is our only hope and trust, the One Who can rescue us in time of trouble. More significantly, the One Who sent His only Begotten Son into the world to be the sacrifice for our salvation from sin. If we turn to Him in faith, He has promised that He "will in no wise cast out."
    So, come, all Christians, brothers and sisters in Christ, let us also bless our God Who daily loadeth us with benefits and indeed is the God of our salvation. Glory to God!
