1 a Thogh the horrible confusion of things might cause them to despaire of Gods fauours, yet the manifolde examples of his merices cause them to trust in God, thogh to mans judgement thei sawe none occasion.
1 ! With manie wordes doeth the Prophet praise the goodnes of God.
2 c As thine inuisible heauen is not subject to anie alteraction & changes: so shal the trueth of thy promes by vnchangeable.
5 f That is, in the heauens.
7 h If the Angels tremble before Gods majestie & infinite justice, what earthlie creature by oppressing the Church, dare set him selfe against God?
9 i For as he deliuered the Church by the red Sea, & by destroying Rahab, that is, the Egyptians: so wil he est sone deliuer it, when the dangers be great.
12 k Tabor is a mountaine West warde from Jerusalem, & Hermon East warde: so the Prophet signifieth that all partes & places of the worlde shal obey Gods power for the deliuerance of his Church.
14 l For hereby he judgeth the world & sheweth him slef a merciful Father & faithful protector vnto his.
15 m Feling in their conscience that God is their Father.
19 q To Samuel and to others, to assure that Dauid was thy chosen one.
23 ! For his testament & couenant, that he had made betwene him and his elect by Jesus Christ the sonne fo Dauid:
23 s Thogh there shalbe euermore enemies against Gods kingdome, yet he promiseth to ouercome them.
24 u His power, glorie & estate.
26 y His excellent dignitie shal appeare herein that he shal be named the sonne of God, & the first borne, wherein he is a figure of Christ.
29 z Thogh for the sinnes of the people the tate of this kingdome decayed: yet God reserued stil a rote, til he had accomplished this promes in Christ.
33 a Thogh the faithful answer not in all points to their profession, yet God wil not breake his couenant with them.
38 ! Then doeth he complaine of the great ruine, and desolation of the kingdome of Dauid, so that to the outwarde appearance the promes was broke.
39 d Because of the horrible confussion of things, the Prophet complaineth to God as thogh he sawe not the performance of his promes. And thus discharging his cares on God, he resisteth doute & inpaciencie.
39 e By this he meaneth that horrible dissipation and renting of the kingdome, which was vnder Jeroboam: or els by the Spirit of prophecie Ethan speaketh of those great miseries, which cam sone afterwarde to passe at the captiuitie of Babylon.
46 ! Finally he praieth to be deliuered from his afflictions, making mention of the shortnes of mans life & confirming him self by Gods promises.
47 h Seing mans life is short, & you hast created man to bestowe thy benefites vpon him, except thou haste to helpe, death wil preuent thee.
50 i He meaneth that Gods enemies did not onely sclander him behinde his backe: but also mocked him to his face, & as it were cast their injuries in his bosome.
51 l They laugh as vs, which paciently waite for the comming of thy Christ.
