Treasury of Scripture
Hold not your peace, O God of my praise;
Psalm 28:1 A Psalm of David. Unto thee will I cry, O LORD my rock; be not silent to me: lest, if thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit.
Psalm 35:22,23 This thou hast seen, O LORD: keep not silence: O Lord, be not far from me…
Psalm 83:1 A Song or Psalm of Asaph. Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.
Psalm 118:28 Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I will exalt thee.
Exodus 15:2 The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt him.
Deuteronomy 10:21 He is thy praise, and he is thy God, that hath done for thee these great and terrible things, which thine eyes have seen.
God of my praise.--That is, God to whom as covenant God it was a privilege to make tehillah. (See Deuteronomy 10:20-21, where Jehovah is said to be "the praise" of those who "swear by His name." Comp. also Psalm 106:2-3, and Note, and Psalm 33:1. Perhaps "God of my glory or boast" would more nearly give the force of the original. The psalmist prays that Jehovah's silence may not make his confident glorifying in the covenant promises vain.Verses 1-5. - The initial prayer and complaint. The prayer occupies one verse only (ver. 1); the complaint four verses (vers. 2-5). Verse 1. - Hold not thy peace, O God of my praise (comp. Psalm 28:1; Psalm 35:22; Psalm 39:12). If God makes no sign when men arc grievously persecuted, he seems to be indifferent to their sufferings. Surely he will not thus treat one who praises him continually (Psalm 22:26; Psalm 71:6).
