Ministry on This Verse

 The soul closes in the conscious feeling— “Blessed is the man that trusts in thee.” And how true it is! Nothing can disturb, nothing is beyond, His power—nothing of which His love cannot take charge for us—nothing which His wisdom does not know how to deal with for blessing. (Practical Reflections on the Psalms: Psalms 81-84 by J.N. Darby)
 Thus the psalm presents the blessedness of the man that dwells in God’s house (vs. 4); the blessedness of the man who is treading the path that leads to God’s house (vs. 5); and the blessedness of the man who trusts in the Lord while treading the path that ends in glory (vs. 12). (Psalms 84 by H. Smith)

J. N. Darby Translation
