Psalms 75 Commentary - Matthew Henry Commentary on the Whole Bible (Concise)

Chapter 75

The psalmist declares his resolution of executing judgment. (1-5) He rebukes the wicked, and concludes with resolutions to praise God. (6-10)

Verses 1-5 We often pray for mercy, when in pursuit of it; and shall we only once or twice give thanks, when we obtain it? God shows that he is nigh to us in what we call upon him for. Public trusts are to be managed uprightly. This may well be applied to Christ and his government. Man's sin threatened to destroy the whole creation; but Christ saved the world from utter ruin. He who is made of God to us wisdom, bids us be wise. To the proud, daring sinners he says, Boast not of your power, persist not in contempt. All the present hopes and future happiness of the human race spring from the Son of God.

6-10. No second causes will raise men to preferment without the First Cause. It comes neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. He mentions not the north; the same word that signifies the north, signifies the secret place; and from the secret of God's counsel it does come. From God alone all must receive their doom. There are mixtures of mercy and grace in the cup of affliction, when it is put into the hands of God's people; mixtures of the curse, when it is put into the hands of the wicked. God's people have their share in common calamities, but the dregs of the cup are for the wicked. The exaltation of the Son of David will be the subject of the saints' everlasting praises. Then let sinners submit to the King of righteousness, and let believers rejoice in and obey him.

Psalms 75 Commentary - Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible

PSALM 75

Psalms 75:1-10 . the Psalmist, anticipating relief in view of God's righteous government, takes courage and renders praise.

1. God's name or perfections are set forth by His wondrous works.

2, 3. These verses express the purpose of God to administer a just government, and in a time of anarchy that He sustains the nation. Some apply the words to the Psalmist.
receive the congregation--literally, "take a set time" ( Psalms 102:13 , Hosea 2:3 ), or an assembly at a set time--that is, for judging.

3. pillars of it--( 1 Samuel 2:8 ).

4-8. Here the writer speaks in view of God's declaration, warning the wicked.
Lift . . . up the horn--to exalt power, here, of the wicked himself--that is, to be arrogant or self-elated.

5. speak . . . neck--insolently.

6. promotion--literally, "a lifting up." God is the only right judge of merit.

8. in the hand . . . a cup . . . red--God's wrath often thus represented (compare Isaiah 51:17 Jeremiah 25:15 ).
but the dregs--literally, "surely the dregs, they shall drain it."

9, 10. Contrasted is the lot of the pious who will praise God, and, acting under His direction, will destroy the power of the wicked, and exalt that of the righteous.
