Faith in Yahweh (Ps 32:8-32:9)

“I will instruct you.

I will teach you

The way that you should go.

I will counsel you

With my eye upon you.

Do not be like a horse or a mule,

Without understanding.

Their temper must be curbed with bit and bridle.

Otherwise they will not stay near you.”

David would instruct the people. He was going to teach them the way that they follow. He was going to counsel them by keeping his eyes on them. He reminded them that they should not be like a horse or a mule without understanding. Those animals have to have their temper curbed with a bridle or bit in the mouth. Otherwise these horses and mules would not stay near anyone. So too the faithful needed guidance.
