Exposition

When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve the Lord.
The great work of restoring ruined Zion is to be spoken of in those golden ages when the heathen nations shall be converted unto God; even those glorious times will not be able to despise that grand event, which, like the passage of Israel through the Red Sea, will never be eclipsed and never cease to awaken the enthusiasm of the chosen people.

Happy will the day be when all nations shall unite in the sole worship of God, then shall the history of the old times be read with adoring wonder, and the hand of the Lord shall be seen as having ever rested upon the host of his elect: then shall shouts of exulting praise ascend to heaven in honour of Him who set the captives free, delivered the condemned, raised up the desolations of ages, and made out of stones and rubbish a temple for his worship.
