Which is lifted up — That proudly contests with the justice and wisdom of the Divine Providence, and provides for his own safety by his own wit. The just — The humble and upright one, who adores the depth of divine providence, and is persuaded of the truth of divine promises. Shall live — Supports himself, by a firm expectation of the deliverance of Zion.
