“In this he follows the prophetic injunction in Amos 5:15, in which the people of the Lord are commanded, ‘Hate evil and love good’ (cf. Ps 97:10). Love without hatred of sin produces laxness toward what grieves the Lord, and hatred of sin without love leads to a harsh, rigid attitude; so the people of the Lord must learn to keep both in balance rather than focusing on one to the exclusion of the other.” (Page 559)
“It then seems more likely that the opening words of this psalm, ‘I lift my eyes toward the mountains,’ express the feelings of weary travelers to Jerusalem as they catch sight of the arduous final ascent as they come for the annual feasts and sense the weight of the challenge before them as they complete their trip to the temple.” (Page 449)
“Psalm 90 challenges humans to view time in a way that is dramatically different from how they are used to seeing it. What seems ever so long to humans is to the Lord a small dot in eternity (cf. 2 Pet 3:8). Humans view time in terms of their brief span of life, but the Lord views time in terms of his eternal existence. To live by godly values, humans must learn to view time as God does, and therefore to live for what transcends time, for what is eternal.” (Page 177)
“Praise remembers the goodness of the Lord, but forgetting the Lord’s goodness dilutes praise.257 Forgetting is the first long step toward spiritual disaster (cf. Deut 4:9, 23), because when people forget who the Lord is and what he has done, they fail to be grateful to him. Failure to praise the Lord, then, is symptomatic of a deeper heart problem.” (Page 263)
