Here is, 1. The confidence of this good man in the hope of God’s salvation: “I have hoped in thy word; and I have not found it in vain to do so; it has not failed me, nor have I been disappointed in my expectations from it. It is a hope that maketh not ashamed; but is present satisfaction, and fruition at last.” 2. The concurrence of other good men with him in the joy of that salvation: “Those that fear thee will be glad when they see me relieved by my hope in thy word and delivered according to my hope.” The comforts which some of God’s children have in God, and the favours they have received from him, should be matter of joy to others of them. Paul often expressed the hope that for God’s grace to him thanks would be rendered by many, 2 Cor. 1:11; 4:15. Or it may be taken more generally; good people are glad to see one another; they are especially pleased with those who are eminent for their hope in God’s word.
