Psalms 92:4 Meaning and Commentary

Psalms 92:4

For thou, Lord, hast made me glad through thy work
Either of creation, which work is mentioned in the precept of the sabbath, as an argument for it; and therefore a very proper work to be remembered and observed on that day; or of providence, which in general extends to all men, but especially to them that believe; or of the work of redemption wrought out by Christ, which is cause of great joy and gladness; or of the work of grace upon the soul, which when a man is satisfied of, gives him infinite pleasure, as knowing it will be performed until the day of Christ; and when a man is in such a joyful frame of spirit, he is in a very suitable one to sing the praises of God, ( James 5:13 ) ,

I will triumph in the works of thine hands;
those before mentioned; or shout aloud for joy, on account of them; and also triumph over all enemies, as being out of the reach of them, so as to be hurt and ruined by them.

Psalms 92:4 In-Context

2 To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning And Your faithfulness by night,
3 With the ten-stringed lute and with the harp, With resounding music upon the lyre.
4 For You, O LORD , have made me glad by what You have done, I will sing for joy at the works of Your hands.
5 How great are Your works, O LORD ! Your thoughts are very deep.
6 A senseless man has no knowledge, Nor does a stupid man understand this:
