Psalm 119:118 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Thou hast trodden down - All thy enemies will be finally trodden down under thy feet.

Their deceit is falsehood - Their elevation is a lie. The wicked often become rich and great, and affect to be happy, but it is all false; they have neither a clean nor approving conscience. Nor can they have thy approbation; and, consequently, no true blessedness.

We cannot ignore the extent and severity of the opposition to the very idea of revelation, even if we would;
