P S A L M S
The scope of this short but excellent psalm is to
show us the way to heaven, and to convince us that, if we would be
happy, we must be holy and honest. Christ, who is himself the way,
and in whom we must walk as our way, has also shown us the same way
that is here prescribed, Matt. xix.
17. "If thou wilt enter into life, keep the
commandments." In this psalm, I. By the question (ver. 1) we are directed and excited to
enquire for the way. II. By the answer to that question, in the
rest of the psalm, we are directed to walk in that way, ver. 2-5. III. By the assurance
given in the close of the psalm of the safety and happiness of
those who answer these characters we are encouraged to walk in that
way, ver. 5.
