Bible Commentary for Psalms 72:13

Wesley's Notes for Psalms 72:13


72:11 All nations - Which cannot be said of Solomon with any truth or colour, but was unquestionably verified in Christ,

72:14 Deceit and violence - The two ways whereby the lives of men are usually destroyed. Precious - He will not be prodigal of the lives of his subjects, but like a true father of his people, will tenderly preserve them, and severely avenge their blood upon those who shall shed it.

72:15 Live - Long and prosperous, as Solomon: yea, eternally as Christ. Gold - This was done to Solomon, #1Kings 10:15|, and to Christ, #Matt 2:11|. But such expressions as these being used of Christ and his kingdom, are commonly understood in a spiritual sense.
