Psalm 145

Psalm 145  •  2 min. read  •  grade level: 11
Here Messiah extols Jehovah in the millennial blessings of peace (vv. 18, 19, 20), showing its introduction by the hearing of the cry of the sorrowful oppressed-then tzad-di-kim (righteous ones) mercy and judgment. But that first statement gives the force of the Psalm, and it is most lovely in unfolding His intercourse—the anthem between Him and His saints and all Creation—His works and all flesh—the chorus extolling Jehovah, the Blessed, in that day. It is a most beautiful Psalm in this respect, and carries us far into blessing—and it shall be continuous; we, however, in our own abiding, and in special, eternal blessing—this with Messiah below.
This Psalm is Messiah's praise, in the ministry of blessing, in His kingdom—the blessedness of the earth under Him. It is the praise of the saints in the kingdom.
10. "Saints." I still take this to be Jewish saints, for it is earthly blessedness, properly millennial, but I do not see but there are elements in it which include, and look into, a further state of things, and therefore it celebrates God's kingdom, not merely Messiah's; but there is the direct earthly blessing in a special state. It is a very beautiful Psalm. The destruction of the wicked, as introducing it, but taking in the general truth. It is the character of God the Lord, celebrated by Messiah, as the Head of the blessing, as His joy, as shown and declared in the blessing, as I said, properly millennial, but including elements of a further kingdom of blessing, and therefore Messiah as there celebrating God, and King whom He could bless, and was the only real Blesser, in personal title, because of it.
I suspect from Psa. 139, but especially from Psa. 142, is a continuous progress. This begins the praise on restoration.
