The psalmist approached God with thanksgiving for His many blessings. Since the Lord looks with disdain upon the proud and boastful, they were admonished to refrain from their acts of pride. In due time, God’s judgment will be pronounced upon the earth with each person receiving his just reward or punishment. The wicked will be brought down while the righteous will be exalted.
God desires to hear our songs of praise and thanksgiving. The psalmist cited various occasions in which the Lord had protected His people from their oppressors. As the psalm concluded, man was urged to keep his vows and to give praise and fear to the Lord God.
