Excerpt from The Works of Mr. John Glas
In the two following verfes, which conclude thofe lafi words of David, he defcribes the enemiesgof this glorious King and his kingdom, their power, wicked enmity, and (iubbornnefs, and their fearful end (hewing alfo, that the wicked (hall have no abode in this kingdom of the Mefliah But the (ons of Belial (hall be all of them as thorns thruft away, becaufe they cannot be taken with hands, he. Thefe are the lafi words of David from which we may be fatisfied, that the promife made to him did not only refpeét the temporal kingdom in his houfe, but, through that, refer unto the eternal kingdom of the Meﬂiah, the Rock of Ifrael for now, when he is leaving the world, he lets go the tem poral part of the promife, and expeé'cs eternal falvation and happinefs by that eternal part of it, that was this chief thingto which every other thing in it had a reference; and, in corn parifon of which, the railing of David and his houfe to rule in that earthly kingdom, was indeed but a fmail thing; as he fays, 2 Sam. Vii. 19. And this was yet a (mall thing in thy fight, 0 Lord God; but thou 'halt alfo fpoken of thy fervant's houfe for a great while to come; and is this the manner of man, O Lord God 2.
