(7) His eyes behold.--Better, his eyes keep watch on the nations. God is, as it were, Israel's outpost, ever on the alert to warn and defend them against surrounding nations.

Let not . . .--Literally, the rebellious, let them not exalt for themselves, where we may supply "horn" as in Psalm 75:4-5, or "head" as in Psalm 3:3; Psalm 110:7. For the rebellious, comp. Psalm 68:6.

Verse 7. - He ruleth by his power forever; his eyes behold (or, observe) the nations. God keeps perpetual watch upon the heathen nations, whose general attitude is that of hostility to his "peculiar people," lest his people should suffer at their hands. Although they may professedly be submissive (ver. 3), their submission is not to be depended on. Let not the rebellious exalt themselves. At any time rebellion may break out, his people be attacked, and "the nations" endeavour to "exalt themselves." All such attempts, however, will be in vain, since "by his power God ruleth forever." 66:1-7 The holy church throughout all the world lifts up her voice, to laud that Name which is above every name, to make the praise of Jesus glorious, both by word and deed; that others may be led to glorify him also. But nothing can bring men to do this aright, unless his effectual grace create their hearts anew unto holiness; and in the redemption by the death of Christ, and the glorious deliverances it effects, are more wondrous works than Israel's deliverance from Egyptian bondage.
