Psalm 146:8

(14) The Lord.--Comp. Psalm 37:24. It marks a grand step in theology when the first instance of majesty of the Divine Being is sought in His condescension to human weakness and pity for frailty and want. The heathen had seen that this was king-like--

"Regia (crede mihi) res est succurrere lapsis."

OVID: Ep. de Ponto 11., 9, 11.

But they had hardly seen that it was also god-like.

For "raiseth" and "bowed down," see Psalm 146:8.

Verse 14. - The Lord upholdeth all that fall. Lifts them up, i.e., and again "upholds" or supports them (comp. Psalm 37:24). And raiseth up all those that be bowed down (comp. Psalm 146:8).
