Psalm 89:51 Parallel
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

Wherewith thine enemies have reproached, O Lord - Have reproached thee and me.

To Him belongeth a Kingdom and a kingly Glory. He has therefore a kingly work to do.

Q-xxxvi: WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS WHICH FLOW FROM SANCTIFICATION? A: Assurance of God's love, peace of conscience, joy in the Holy Ghost, increase of grace, and perseverance therein to the end.
