Psalm 28 Commentary
Do not drag me away with the wicked, with those who do evil, who speak cordially with their neighbors but harbor malice in their hearts. Repay them according to their work and according to the evil of their practices; Repay them according to the deeds of their hands; Repay them what they deserve.
Before you repeat this prayer, consider the following: Then David said to Uriah, “Go down to your house, and wash your feet (spend time at home).” Uriah left the king’s palace, and a gift from the king was sent out after him. Second Samuel 11 verse 8.
There are many times when the saint must sit down and look at their own lives. They are the wicked whose deeds must be punished.
Nevertheless, here we are, subjects of God’s compassion. We can therefore pray: Do not drag us away with the wicked, with those who do evil. Thanks to God we are not in the class of the wicked. Because of your compassion, LORD, we have received forgiveness and like David, we can pray: “be their shepherd and carry them forever.” We are now the sheep of your pasture.
We don’t want to suffer the punishment of the wicked; those who don’t have any regard for the works of the LORD. Save us from trouble, physical or otherwise.
Because of the compassions of the LORD, each man has the chance of declassifying themselves from the crowd of the wicked to the assembly of the righteous. That is the function of the gospel. The dirty man can receive the cleansing and lordship of the LORD Jesus Christ. And then the LORD God can be their shepherd and carry them forever.
