“For he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things. ”
These verses in this psalm mention the deliverance from Egypt, and perhaps from Babylon, but the circumstances of the travelers in these countries are also indicated. It is scarcely possible to conceive the horrors suffered by the unfortunate traveler, when he crosses the trackless sands, exposed to the burning rays of the sun. The words describe the case of those which the Lord has redeemed from the bondage of Satan, who pass through the world as a dangerous and dreary wilderness, often ready to faint from trouble, fear and temptation. Those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for God and for fellowship with him, will be filled with the blessings of his house, in grace and in glory.
