CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The Lord will strengthen him - Good, benevolent, and merciful as he is, he must also die: but he shall not die as other men; he shall have peculiar consolations, refreshment, and support, while passing through the valley of the shadow of death.
Thou wilt make all his bed - הפכת haphachta, thou hast turned up, tossed, and shaken it; and thou wilt do so to all his bed - thou wilt not leave one uneasy place in it - not one lump, or any unevenness, to prevent him from sleeping. Thou wilt do every thing, consistently with the accomplishment of the great decree, "Unto dust thou shalt return," to give him ease, refreshment, and rest. We may sum up the privileges of the merciful man:
1. He is generally blessed, Psalm 41:1.
2. He will be delivered in the time of trouble, Psalm 41:1.
3. He will be preserved by a particular providence, Psalm 41:2.
4. He shall be kept alive amidst infection and danger, Psalm 41:2.
5. He shall be blessed on the earth in his temporal concerns, Psalm 41:2.
6. His enemies shall not be able to spoil or destroy him, Psalm 41:2.
7. He shall be strengthened on a bed of languishing, to enable him to bear his afflictions, Psalm 41:3.
8. He shall have ease, comfort, and support in his last hours, Psalm 41:3.

As we have done before we can only take one or two specimens of these general lessons which Jesus taught. We have one of these in the title to our present chapter, which is--Christ Teaching Liberality. This was a very important lesson for Jesus to teach. One of the sad effects of sin upon our nature is to make it selfish, …

The Beatific vision. (Continued. )
He said, "If you listen carefully to the LORD your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the LORD, who heals you."
The LORD protects and preserves them-- they are counted among the blessed in the land-- he does not give them over to the desire of their foes.
I said, "Have mercy on me, LORD; heal me, for I have sinned against you."
