Hope and Quietly Wait

1-ps 27 14 wm jpg

It is good that a man should both hope and
quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.
Lamentations 3:26

It is good that a man should both hope
Hope is essentially necessary to faith;
he that hopes not, cannot believe;
if there be no expectation,
there can be no confidence.
When a man hopes for salvation,
he should not only waft for it,
but use every means that may lead to it;
for hope cannot live,
if there be no exercise.
If hope become impatient,
faith will be impossible:
for who can believe for his salvation
when his mind is agitated?
He must therefore quietly wait.

Clarke’s Commentary
