Vs. 6 – Then I would not be ashamed, When I look into all Your commandments.
The Psalmist had prayed for direction to keep God’s commandments: here he showeth the fruit and benefit of that direction. (Manton, T. (1872). The Complete Works of Thomas Manton (Vol. 6, p. 53). London: James Nisbet & Co.)
I do not want to be ashamed when I look into Your commandments. Because of the Gospel–the redemptive work of Christ Jesus, that shame, guilt, and regret are foreign to me. Help me to follow Your word in all aspects of my life. Let my heart rejoice in all that You say and teach and never be ashamed either in private or public of the Gospel of Jesus. Also let me see the treasures within Your commandments. Let my eyes see Your perfections, holiness, justice, and righteousness. May my reverence and fear of You be healthy and increase within. Blessed be Thy Name forever and ever. Amen!
