Vs. 46 — I will speak of Your testimonies also before kings, And will not be ashamed.

John Calvin:

In these words he [David] seems to believe that he is in possession of that which he formerly prayed for. He had said, “Take not the word of truth out of my mouth,” and now, as if he had obtained what he requested, he rises up, and maintains that he would not be dumb, even were he called upon to speak in the presence of kings. He affirms that he would willingly stand forward in vindication of the glory of God in the face of the whole world.


Jesus, my King, I will speak of Your testimonies before kings–to those above me in authority in this world, and I will not be ashamed. I will not fear their ridicule or retaliation, nor take rejection personally. For I am not ashamed of the Gospel, for it is the power of God unto salvation. Grant me courage and boldness, and the opportunity to share the message of life. Because I know that I have the truth and the King of kings as my God, I will not be intimidated by man. Indeed, You are God, and You are my God!
