Psalm 103:3 As a father pities his children, So the Lord pities those who fear Him.
The Load pitieth. Though it be commonly said, “It is better to be envied, than pitied;” yet here it is not so: but it is a far happier thing to be pitied of God, than to be envied of men. – Sir R. Baker.
As a father pitieth his children. The father pitieth his children that are weak in knowledge, and instructs them; pities them when they are froward, and bears with them; pities them when they are sick, and comforts them; when they are fallen, and helps them up again; when they have offended, and upon their submission, forgives them; when they are wronged, and rights them. Thus “the Lord pitieth them that fear him.” – Matthew Henry.
