Continue thy loving-kindness unto them that know thee, and thy righteousness to the upright in heart;

World English Bible
Oh continue your loving kindness to those who know you, your righteousness to the upright in heart.

Young's Literal Translation
Draw out Thy kindness to those knowing Thee, And Thy righteousness to the upright of heart.

Psalm 36:10 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

O continue thy loving-kindness - Literally, "Draw out thy mercy." The allusion to the spring is still kept up.

Unto them that know thee - To them who acknowledge thee in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation.

And thy righteousness - That grace which justifies the ungodly, and sanctifies the unholy.

To the upriabt in heart - לישרי לב levishrey leb, to the straight of heart; to those who have but one end in view, and one aim to that end.

This is true of every genuine penitent, and of every true believer.

How is Christ, as the Life, to be Applied by a Soul that Misseth God's Favour and Countenance.
The sixth case, that we shall speak a little to, is a deadness, occasioned by the Lord's hiding of himself, who is their life, and "the fountain of life," Ps. xxxvi. 9, and "whose loving-kindness is better than life," Ps. lxiii. 3, and "in whose favour is their life," Ps. xxx. 5. A case, which the frequent complaints of the saints manifest to be rife enough, concerning which we shall, 1. Shew some of the consequences of the Lord's hiding his face, whereby the soul's case will appear. 2. Shew the

Of Self-Surrender
Of Self-Surrender We should now begin to abandon and give up our whole existence unto God, from the strong and positive conviction, that the occurrence of every moment is agreeable to His immediate will and permission, and just such as our state requires. This conviction will make us resigned in all things; and accept of all that happens, not as from the creature, but as from God Himself. But I conjure you, my dearly beloved, who sincerely wish to give up yourselves to God, that after you have made

The Eternity of Heaven's Happiness.
Having endeavored, in the foregoing pages, to form to ourselves some idea of the glorious happiness reserved for us in heaven, there still remains to say something of its crowning glory--the eternity of its duration. This is not only its crowning glory, but it is, moreover, an essential constituent of that unspeakable joy which now inebriates the souls of the blessed. A moment's reflection will make this evident. Let us suppose, for the sake of illustration, that on the last day, God should thus
