Psalms 50:23 Meaning and Commentary

Psalms 50:23

Whoso offereth praise
, Which is exhorted to; (See Gill on Psalms 50:14);

glorifieth me;
celebrates the divine perfections, gives God the glory of all mercies; which honours him, and is more grateful and well pleasing to him than all burnt offerings and sacrifices;

and to him that ordereth [his] conversation [aright];
according to the rule of God's word, and as becomes the Gospel of Christ; who walks inoffensively to all, circumspectly and wisely in the world, and in love to the saints; in wisdom towards them that are without, and in peace with them that are within; who is a follower of God, of Christ, and of his people; and who lives so as to glorify God, and cause others to glorify him likewise: or that chooses for himself the right way, as Aben Ezra, the right way to eternal life; and the sense is, he that puts or sets his heart upon it, and is in pursuit after the evangelical way of life. To him

will I show the salvation of God;
or, "cause to see" or "enjoy it" F2; not only temporal salvation from time to time, but spiritual and eternal salvation; to see interest in it, and to possess it; and particularly Christ, the author of it, who is the salvation of God's providing, appointing, and sending, and whose glory is greatly concerned therein; see ( Isaiah 52:10 ) ( Luke 2:25 Luke 2:30 ) .


F2 (wnada) "videre faciam eum", Montanus; "faciam ut is fruatur", Junius & Tremellius, Piscator.
