Psalm is a mine of gold to the true worshippers, who worship God in the spirit, and in the truth, rejoicing in Christ Jesus, and having no confidence in the flesh; and, as explained by the Holy Ghost in the xth chapter of the Epistle to the Hebrews, may serve as an infallible Key to all the rest of the Psalms

- After what has been already suggested from the Scriptures to the common sense of mankind, in the general preface, it may be reckoned superfluous to all, what a false light he follows, when he regards the contents prefixed to the top of each Psalm, (not to speak any more of the commentators, who are all of one spirit), by comparing them with the unquestionable New Testament interpretations : witness this Psalm, the xvith, xxiid, and lxixth.--For parallels, Psalm and verse, consult the references on the margin : * see especially the following, all precisely (as this) spoken in one person, and of the same spirit and strain of expression; viz. Psalms xvi. xxii

PSALM XLI. This Psalm, being spoken also in one person, and interpreted, John xii. 18. by the Lord concerning himself, when betrayed by Judas, perfectly ascer tains, in like manner, the meaning and true application of these two following ones, viz. Psal. xxvii. and ly, with their parallels.

Behold the Lord, the Lord of all,
For us become so weak and

That he behov'd on God to call,

To save him in his awful hour !--
Behold th' ingratitude confest

Of Judas' base and treach'rous heart :
A sad example to the rest,

Who from the Lord their God depart !
I BLESSED is he that wisely doth

The poor man's case consider ;
For when the time of trouble is,

The Lord will him deliver.
2 God will him keep, yea, save alive;

On earth he bless'd shall live;
And to his enemies' desire

Thou wilt him not upgive.
3 God will give strength when he on bed

Of languishing doth mourn;
And in his sickness sore, O Lord,

Thou all his bed wilt turn.
4 I said, O Lord, do thou extend

Thy mercy unto me;


o do thou heal my soul; for why?

I have offended thee.
5 Those that to me are enemies,

Of me do evil say,
When shall he die, that so his name

May perish quite away?
6 To see me if he comes, he speaks

Vain words: but then his heart
Heaps mischief to it, which he tells,

When forth he doth depart. 7 My haters jointly whispering, Gainst me


hurt devise. 8 Mischief, say they, cleaves fast to him ;

He li'th, and shall not rise.
9 Yea, ev'n mine own familiar friend,

On whom I did rely,
Who ate my bread, ev’n he his heel

Against me lifted high.
10 But, Lord, be merciful to me,

And up again me raise,
That I may justly them requite

According to their ways.
11 By this I know that certainly

I favour'd am by thee;


Triumphs not over me.
12 But as for me, thou me uphold'st

In mine integrity;
And me before thy countenance

Thou sett'st continually.
13 The Lord, the God of Israel,

Be bless'd for ever then,
From age to age eternally.

Amen, yea, and amen;
