Psalms 116:5 Meaning and Commentary

Psalms 116:5

Gracious is the Lord
So the psalmist found him, calling upon him; so he is in Christ, the author and giver of all grace, to help in time of need.

And righteous;
faithful to his promises, just in every dispensation of his providence, even in afflictive ones; righteous in punishing the enemies of his people, and in saving, justifying, and pardoning them for Christ's sake.

Yea, our God is merciful;
compassionate, tenderhearted, a heart full of pity, as a father to his child; and sympathizes with his people under all their afflictions, and saves them out of them; see ( Psalms 86:5 Psalms 86:15 ) .

Psalms 116:5 In-Context

3 Death wrapped its ropes around me; the terrors of the grave overtook me. I saw only trouble and sorrow.
4 Then I called on the name of the LORD : “Please, LORD, save me!”
5 How kind the LORD is! How good he is! So merciful, this God of ours!
6 The LORD protects those of childlike faith; I was facing death, and he saved me.
7 Let my soul be at rest again, for the LORD has been good to me.
