“Great are thy tender mercies, O LORD: quicken me according to thy judgments.” (Psalms 119:156) (KJV)

Great are thy tender mercies, O LORD:

[su_pullquote align=”left”] Quickening is a great and tender mercy; and it is many mercies in one. Shall one so really good permit his servant to die? Will not one so tender breathe new life into him?[/su_pullquote]

Here the Psalmist pleads the largeness of God’s mercy, the immensity of his tender love; yea, he speaks of mercies— mercies many, mercies tender, mercies great; and with the glorious Jehovah he makes this a plea for his one leading prayer, the prayer for quickening. Quickening is a great and tender mercy; and it is many mercies in one. Shall one so really good permit his servant to die? Will not one so tender breathe new life into him?

“Quicken me according to thy judgments.”

A measure of awakening comes with the judgments of God; they are startling and arousing; and hence the believer’s quickening thereby. David would have every severe stroke sanctified to his benefit, as well as every tender mercy. The first clause of this verse may run, “Many, “or, “manifold are thy compassions, O Jehovah.” This he remembers in connection with the “many persecutors” of whom he will speak in the next verse. By all these many mercies he pleads for enlivening grace, and thus he has many strings to his bow. We shall never be short of arguments if we draw them from God himself, and urge both his mercies and his judgments as reasons for our quickening.
