“O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works.”
“O God, thou hast taught me from my youth. It was comfortable to the psalmist to remember that from his earliest days he had been the Lord’s disciple. None are too young to be taught of God, and they make the most proficient scholars who begin betimes.
And hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works. He had learned to tell what he knew, he was a pupil teacher; he continued still learning and declaring, and did not renounce his first master; this, also, was his comfort, but it is one which those who have been seduced from the school of the gospel, into the various colleges of philosophy and scepticism, will not be able to enjoy. A sacred conservatism is much needed in these days, when men are giving up old lights for new. We mean both to learn and to teach the wonders of redeeming love, till we can discover something nobler or more soul satisfying; for this reason we hope that our gray heads will be found in the same road as we have trodden, even from our beardless youth.”
