Psalms 145:4 Meaning and Commentary

Psalms 145:4

One generation shall praise thy works to another
The works of providence done in one age shall be told by the father to the son with praise to the great Performer of them, and so be transmitted to the latest posterity; for in every age there are new and strange things done in Providence, the memory of which is not lost, but they are recorded for the glory of God and the use of men; and the works of grace and salvation wrought by Christ should be, have been, and will be told from age to age; and published in every age by his faithful ministering servants, to the glory of his grace, and the praise of his great name; see ( Psalms 22:30 Psalms 22:31 ) ( Psalms 102:12 Psalms 102:18 ) ; and shall declare thy mighty acts;
his mighty acts of nature, in creating all things out of nothing, and upholding all things by the word of his power; his mighty acts of grace, in redeeming his people out of the hands of him that is stronger than they; and from all their sins, and from the curse and condemnation of the law, and wrath to come; and the victories which he has obtained over sin, Satan, the world, and death: or thy powers F2; the powers of the world to come, ( Hebrews 6:5 ) ; the miracles wrought by Christ on earth, and by his disciples in Gospel times, sometimes called mighty works; as the raising of the dead ( Matthew 11:5 Matthew 11:20 Matthew 11:21 ) .
