(10) The Lord is the true God.--Literally, Jehovah is the God that is Truth. The thought expressed is that for which St. John, as indeed the LXX. does here, uses the word al?thinos (John 17:3; 1John 5:20), Truth in its highest and most perfect form. So "I am the way, the truth, and the life" (John 14:6).

An everlasting king.--Here, as in other like passages, the English Version is not wrong, but the Hebrew idiom "King of Eternity" is far grander.

Verse 10. - The true God; literally, a God in truth, the accusative of apposition being chosen instead of the usual genitive construction, to emphasize the idea of "truth."
