V, Psalm 36:10) O Continue Thy Lovingkindness Unto Them That Know Not Thee; And Thy Righteousness To The Upright In Heart. 11) Let Not The Foot Of Pride Come Against me, And Let Not The hand Of The Wicked Remove me. 12) There Are The Workers Of Iniquity Fallen: They Are Cast Down, And Shall Not Be Able To Rise.
John Gill’s Exposition of The Bible – v10, O Continue Thy Lovingkindness To Them That Know Thee That is, Spiritually and (to) such that Trust In (Thee) and Love (Thee): And These Are The Objects Of The Love Of God; not that their Knowledge, Faith, or Love, are the cause of His Love to them; but These Things Describe and Point At Manifestly (The Evidence and Obvious) objects of It; and this request regards the open discovery of it unto them: for The Love Of God Itself Always Continues, though the Manifestations of it are not always the same; and it is for the Enlargement and Continuance of Them The Psalmist Here Prays: for it may be rendered, “Draw Out Thy Lovingkindness” F7; that is, To A Greater Length; Make A Larger And Clearer Discovery Of It, That The Height And Depth, And Length And Breadth Of It, May Be More Discerned; And Thy Righteousness Unto The Upright In Heart; who are Sincere and Without Guile (Deceit); who have New Hearts Created and Right Spirits Renewed in them, and have Truth in the inward parts; and unto and upon such is The Righteousness Of Christ, and Where It Always Continues, For It Is An Everlasting One; but here it means a Clearer and Constant Revelation of It From Faith To Faith; unless it should rather intend The Righteousness Of God In Protecting His People From The Insults Of Their Enemies, And The Continual Exertion of It (His Righteousness) For That Purpose. v11, Let not the foot of pride come against me Meaning some proud enemy, such an one as Ahithophel, of whom R. Obadiah expounds, it, who lifted up his heel against him; and is applicable to any haughty enemy of Christ And His People, and particularly to Antichrist, The Man Of Sin, that exalts himself above all That Is Called (Of) God; and let not the hand of the wicked remove me; either from The House Of God; Or From His Throne, that high station and dignity in which he was placed. v12, There are the workers, of iniquity fallen Either in the pit they dug for others; or into Hell, where they shall be turned at last; (See Gill on Psalms 5:5) and (See Gill on Psalms 6:8); they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise; which will be the case of Babylon when fallen, ( Revelation 18:21 ) , and this distinguishes the falls of the wicked from those of The Righteous; for though The Righteous Fall, whether into sin, or into any calamity, they rise again; not so the wicked; see ( Psalms 37:24 ) ( Micah 7:8 ) ; and thus, as the psalm begins with the transgression of the wicked, it ends with their ruin.
