Precious in the sight of the Lord
is the death of his saints.
That word, “precious” refers to something that is important, carefully watched over, and of great importance. These words are saying that when each one of us leaves this life for the next (which is glorious and is with Him), He is is attending us very carefully. He guides the circumstances of our death. It will be in His perfect timing. He will carry us to Himself gracefully. These words should bring us comfort on the occasion of the death of a lived one, and should give us courage when we face our own death. He cares and He is taking care.
