Barnes' Notes on the Bible

The Lord preserveth all them that love him - He keeps them; watches over them; defends them; makes them the object of his care. See Psalm 31:20, note, Psalm 31:23, note; Psalm 97:10, note.

Fall upon your knees, break forth into

The law and covenant of God are co-extensive; and what is enjoined in the one is confirmed in the other. The proposals of that Covenant include its promises and its duties.
