John Gill’s Exposition of The Bible – v8, They Shall Be Abundantly Sallied (Satisfied) With The Fatness Of Thy House By His “House” Is Meant The Church Of God, of His Building, And Where He Dwells; by The Fatness of It The Provisions There, The Word And Ordinances, and The Blessings Of Grace which They Hold Forth; And Especially Christ, The Fatted Calf, The Bread Of Life, Whose Flesh Is Meat Indeed, And Whose Blood Is Drink Indeed, And Which Make A Feast Of Fat Things; and these they that Trust In The Lord Are Welcome to Eat and Drink Of Abundantly, And To Abundant Satisfaction; see ( Matthew 5:6 ) ( Psalms 22:26 ) ; And Thou Shall Make Them Drink Of The River Of Thy Pleasure; The Love Of God, Whose Streams Make Glad The City Of God; Or The Fulness Of Grace, Which Is In Christ, out of which Believers Draw With Joy, and Drink With Pleasure; Or Eternal Glory and Happiness, Enjoyed In The Presence Of God, In Which Is Fullness Of Joy, And At Whose Right Hand Are Pleasures For Evermore; A Never Ceasing Torrent Of Them. v9, For With Thee [Is] The Fountain Of Life Or “Lives” F6: God Himself Is The Fountain Of Living Waters; this is a reason Proving The Happiness of those that Trust In The Lord, and that they shall enjoy the above things; because With God The Object Of Their Trust Is The Fountain Of Life; not only of natural life, From Whom They Have It, and By Whom It Is Supported, but of Spiritual Life, Being Quickened (Made Alive) By Him When Dead In Sin, By Virtue (Goodness) of Which They Live By Faith On Christ, and also of Eternal Life; and the phrase denotes, That Life Is Originally In God As In Its Fountain, and that both the Fullness Of It Is With Him, and The Freeness of It in the communication of It to others, as well as Its Continuance and Duration; In Thy Light Shall We See Light; God Is Light Itself, The Father Of Lights; In The Light Of His Countenance, and The Discoveries Of His Love, they that Trust In Him see Light, or Enjoy Comfort; and in The Light Of His Son Jesus Christ, The Son Of Righteousness and Light Of The World, They See The Face Of God, And Enjoy His Favor, and Behold The Glory And Excellency Of Christ Himself; and In The Light Of The Divine Spirit, Who Is A Spirit Of Wisdom And Revelation, (In Thy Light) they see their sins exceeding sinful, their righteousness as nothing, and a Preciousness In The Blood, Righteousness, And Sacrifice Of Christ; and in The Light Of The Divine Word They See The Truths Of The Gospel And (Its) Excellency, and The Duties Of Religion To Be Performed By Them; and In The Light Of Faith, Which Is The Gift Of God, they have at least a glimpse of the unseen Glories Of The Other World; And When The Beatific Vision Shall Take Place, They Shall See No More Darkly Through A Glass, But Face To Face, Even God Himself, As He Is In Christ.
