Psalms 40:16

Let all those that seek you rejoice and be glad in you: let such as love your salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified.
Read Chapter 40

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
"Let all those that seek Thee, O Lord, rejoice and be glad" (ver. 16). Those who "seek" not me, but "Thee;" who say not to me, "Well done! Well done!" but see me "glory in Thee," if I have anything whereof to glory; for "he who glories, let him glory in the Lord." "Let all those who seek Thee, Lord, rejoice and be glad." "And say continually, the Lord be magnified." For even if the sinner becometh righteous, thou shouldest give the glory to "Him who justifieth the ungodly." Whether therefore it be a sinner, let Him be praised who calls him to forgiveness; or one already walking in the way of righteousness, let Him be praised who callus him to receive the crown! Let the Name of the Lord be magnified continually by "such as love Thy salvation." ...

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Magnified. Thus may those speak, who sincerely love God. (Worthington)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
