Observe here, The deliverer, God; the delivered, St. Paul, and the saints that were in Asia with him; the deliverance itself, or the imminent and impending evil delivered from, death, great death, so great a death.
Learn, 1. That in times of great and imminent danger, God, and God alone, is the immediate deliverer of his children and people.
Learn, 2. That it is the property of a gracious heart to magnify and enhance the deliverance of a gracious God: He hath delivered us from so great a death, &c.
Learn, 3. That past and present experience of God's power and goodness towards his people may and ought to encourage them to trust in him for time to come: former experience ought to encourage us to future dependence; when we can say, God hath delivered, and doth deliver, let our faith add, In him we trust that he will yet deliver.
