“But you have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox; you have poured over me fresh oil” (v10). This “Sabbath song” celebrates the victory of God that extends even to us, His children. Morning and evening we are called to sing about the works of God’s hands, His steadfast love, and His faithfulness (v2-4), declaring the truth that God always triumphs over His enemies (v7-9). His “fresh oil” is available to us daily, and in fellowship with Him, our spirits remain “full of sap and green” (v10-14).
“They still bear fruit in old age” (v14). As we remain rooted in God, His victorious life flows through us and out to those still under the shadow of death.
