CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
For his merciful kindness is great - גבר gabar, is strong: it is not only great in bulk or number, but it is powerful; it prevails over sin, Satan, death, and hell.
And the truth of the Lord endureth for ever - Whatsoever he has promised, that he will most infallibly fulfill. He has promised to send his Son into the world, and thus he has done. He his promised that he should die for transgressors, and this he did. He has promised to receive all who come unto him through Christ Jesus, and this he invariably does. He has promised that his Gospel shall be preached in every nation, and this he is doing; the truth of the Lord remaineth for ever. Therefore, Praise ye the Lord!

For His truth and mercy stand, Past, and present, and to be, Like the years of His right hand, Like His own eternity.

Of Meditation Upon the Hidden Judgments of God, that we May not be Lifted up Because of Our Well-Doing
"The LORD is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father's God, and I will exalt him.
For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him;
He is the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them-- he remains faithful forever.
