Gracious is the Lord
So the psalmist found him, calling upon him; so he is in Christ, the author and giver of all grace, to help in time of need.
faithful to his promises, just in every dispensation of his providence, even in afflictive ones; righteous in punishing the enemies of his people, and in saving, justifying, and pardoning them for Christ's sake.
Yea, our God is merciful;
compassionate, tenderhearted, a heart full of pity, as a father to his child; and sympathizes with his people under all their afflictions, and saves them out of them; see ( Psalms 86:5 Psalms 86:15 ) .
