Psalms 59:16 Meaning and Commentary

Psalms 59:16

But I will sing of thy power
In creating all things out of nothing; in upholding all things in being; in the redemption of his people; in their conversion and calling; in the preservation of them to eternal happiness; in the performance of his promises to them; in the destruction of their enemies; and in their protection:

yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning;
of providential mercies, which are new every morning; and of special mercy in the heart of God, in the covenant of his grace, in redemption, in regeneration, in the pardon of sin, and in eternal life and salvation;

for thou hast been my defence; (See Gill on Psalms 59:9);

and refuge in the day of my trouble;
whither he fled, and found protection and safety; (See Gill on Psalms 9:9).

Psalms 59:16 In-Context

14 They return in the evening. They howl like dogs. They prowl the city.
15 They wander around to find something to eat. If they are not full enough, they will stay all night.
16 But I will sing about your strength. In the morning I will joyfully sing about your mercy. You have been my stronghold and a place of safety in times of trouble.
17 O my strength, I will make music to praise you! God is my stronghold, my merciful God!
