Commentary on this verse

By Henry MacLagan

Verse 17. But in such worship there is no parallelism and correspondence with the Lord; there is only a preparation for it through the power of faith and the acknowledgement of the Lord; and yet such worship is accepted by the Lord, and shall be consecrated to Him, the good of merit being therein distinguished from the good of love.
