Psalm 144:2 Parallel
Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

My goodness - Margin, "my mercy." That is, He shows me mercy or favor. All the favors that I receive come from him.

And my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer - See the notes at Psalm 18:2, where the same words occur.

My shield - The same word which in Psalm 18:2 is rendered "buckler." See the notes at that passage.

And he in whom I trust - The same idea as in Psalm 18:2. The tense of the verb only is varied.

Who subdueth my people under me - See the notes at Psalm 18:47. The language is slightly different, but the idea is the same. It is to be remarked that David "here" refers to his people - "who subdueth my people," meaning that those over whom God had placed him had been made submissive by the divine power.

This declared by the first class of works--viz. the admirable motions of the heavens and the earth, the symmetry of the human body, and the connection of its parts; in short, the various objects which are presented to every eye. 3. This more especially manifested in the structure of the human body. 4. The shameful ingratitude of disregarding God, who, in such a variety of ways, is manifested within
