Psalms 128 Commentary - Matthew Henry Commentary on the Whole Bible (Concise)

Chapter 128

The blessings of those who fear God.

- Only those who are truly holy, are truly happy. In vain do we pretend to be of those that fear God, if we do not make conscience of keeping stedfastly to his ways. Blessed is every one that fears the Lord; whether he be high or low, rich or poor in the world. If thou fear him and walk in his ways, all shall be well with thee while thou livest, better when thou diest, best of all in eternity. By the blessing of God, the godly shall get an honest livelihood. Here is a double promise; they shall have something to do, for an idle life is a miserable, uncomfortable life, and shall have health and strength, and power of mind to do it. They shall not be forced to live upon the labours of other people. It is as much a mercy as a duty, with quietness to work and eat our own bread. They and theirs shall enjoy what they get. Such as fear the Lord and walk in his ways, are the only happy persons, whatever their station in life may be. They shall have abundant comfort in their family relations. And they shall have all the good things God has promised, and which they pray for. A good man can have little comfort in seeing his children's children, unless he sees peace upon Israel. Every true believer rejoices in the prosperity of the church. Hereafter we shall see greater things, with the everlasting peace and rest that remain for the Israel of God.

Psalms 128 Commentary - Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible

PSALM 128

Psalms 128:1-6 . The temporal blessings of true piety. The eighth chapter of Zecariah is a virtual commentary on this Psalm. Compare Psalms 128:3 with Zechariah 8:5 ; and Psalms 128:2 with Leviticus 26:16 , Deuteronomy 28:33 , Zechariah 8:10 ; and Psalms 128:6 with Zechariah 8:4 .

1. (Compare Psalms 1:1 ).

2. For thou shalt eat--that is, It is a blessing to live on the fruits of one's own industry.

3. by the sides--or, "within" ( Psalms 48:2 ).
olive plants--are peculiarly luxuriant ( Psalms 52:8 ).

5. In temporal blessings the pious do not forget the richer blessings of God's grace, which they shall ever enjoy.

6. Long life crowns all other temporal favors. As Psalms 125:5 , this Psalm closes with a prayer for peace, with prosperity for God's people.
