John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 85:9

His salvation — That compleat salvation for which all the Israel of God wait; even the redemption by the Messiah; of which not only Christian, but even Jewish writers understand this place; and to which the following passages properly belong. And the psalmist might well say this salvation was nigh, because the seventy weeks determined by Daniel were begun. Glory — The glorious presence of God, and the God of glory himself, even Christ, who is the brightness of his father's glory.
