Psalms 36:9

_ _ Light is an emblem of all blessings, given of God as a means to gain more.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 36:5-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 36:9

Life — It is in God as in a fountain, and from him is derived to us. But — Of that glorious and blessed, and endless life, which alone is worthy of the name. Light — In the light of thy glorious presence, which shall be fully manifested, when we see thee face to face. Light — Joy and comfort, and happiness: the word light is elegantly repeated in another signification; in the former clause it is light discovering, in this light, discovered or enjoyed.
