Psalms 136:25 Meaning and Commentary

Psalms 136:25

Who giveth food to all flesh
To all creatures; the beasts of the field, and fowls of the air, the young ravens that cry, ( Psalms 145:15 Psalms 145:16 ) ( 147:9 ) . To all men their daily food; to Jews and Gentiles, good men and bad men, ( Matthew 6:11 ) ( Acts 14:16 Acts 14:17 ) ; and spiritual food to all that belong to Christ, who are flesh of his flesh, and bone of his bone; even himself, the bread of life, the wholesome truths of the Gospel, and its refreshing ordinances;

for his mercy [endureth] for ever;
he continues to have compassion on his creatures, and opens his hand of providence, and supplies their wants; he is ever mindful of his covenant of grace and mercy, and therefore gives meat to them that fear him, ( Psalms 111:5 ) .
