    1 An exhortation to give thanks to God for particular mercies. - (Title.) This Psalm is little else than a repetition of the preceding, with the addition of the burden, "for his mercy endureth for ever," at the end of each verse; and it was doubtless composed on the same occasion. It seems evidently to have been a responsive song; the first part of the verse being probably sung by the Levites, and the burden by the people. VERSE 1 - Give thanks. * :1 105:1; 106:1; 107:1; 118:1; 119:68 2Ch 7:3,6 Ezr 3:11 Jer 33:11 - for his mercy. * :17 103:17 1Ch 16:34,41 2Ch 20:21 Lu 1:50 Jude 1:21 VERSE 2 - the God. * :1 82:1 97 7:7,9 Ex 18:11 De 10:17 Jos 22:22 2Ch 2:5 Da 2:47 VERSE 3 - the Lord. * 1Ti 6:15 Re 17:14; 19:16 VERSE 4 - who alone. * :18 72:18; 86:10 Ex 15:11 Job 5:9 Re 15:3 VERSE 5 In the contrivance of the celestial bodies--in their specific gravities, relations, connections, influences on each other, revolutions, etc.; and in the wonderful adaptation of the atmosphere for the purposes of refracting the light, forming rain, dew, snow, etc., are exhibited the most astonishing displays of the Divine wisdom. * Ps 33:6; 104:24 Ge 1:1 Pr 3:19,20; 8:22-29 Jer 51:15 VERSE 6 * Ps 24:2; 104:2,3 Ge 1:9 Job 26:7; 37:18 Isa 40:22; 44:24 Jer 10:12 * Zec 12:1 2Pe 3:5-7 VERSE 7 * :16 74:16,17 19 104:19 Ge 1:14-19 De 4:19 VERSE 8 - The sun. * :3 148:3 Jer 31:35 Mt 5:45 - to rule. Heb. for the rulings. VERSE 9 - The moon and stars. The sun is the monarch of day, the state of light; the moon of the night, the state of darkness. The rays of the sun falling on the atmosphere, are refracted and diffused over the whole of the hemisphere of the earth immediately under his orb; while those rays of that vast luminary which, because of the earth's smallness in comparison with the sun, are diffused on all sides beyond the earth, falling on the opaque disc of the moon, are reflected back on the lower hemisphere, or the part of the earth opposite the sun. But the reflected light being 50,000 times less in intensity than that of the sun, there is a sufficient distinction between day and night, though each is ruled and determined by one of these two great lights. * Ps 8:3; 89:36,37 Job 31:26 VERSE 10 * :51 78:51; 1036 5:36 8 135:8 Ex 11:5,6; 12:12,29 Heb 11:28 VERSE 11 - brought out. * :52 78:52; 1037 5:37 Ex 12:51; 13:3,17 1Sa 12:6-8 VERSE 12 * Ex 6:6; 13:14; 15:6 De 11:2-4 Isa 51:9,10 Jer 32:21 Ac 7:36 VERSE 13 * Ps 66:5,6; 74:13; 78:13; 106:9-11 Ex 14:21,22,29 Isa 63:12,13 * Heb 11:29 VERSE 14 - pass through. * :13 78:13; 109 6:9 Ex 14:22 VERSE 15 - But overthrew. Heb. But shaked off. * :53 78:53; 139 5:9 Ex 14:27,28; 15:4,5,10,11 Ne 9:10,11 - for his mercy. * Ps 65:5; 79:6-9; 143:12 Ex 15:12,13 Lu 1:71-74 VERSE 16 * :20 77:20 Ex 13:18; 15:22 Nu 9:17-22 De 8:2,15 Ne 9:12,19 * Isa 49:10; 63:11-14 VERSE 17 * :10 135:10,11 Jos 12:1-24 VERSE 18 - And slew. * Ps 10:8; 59:11; 78:31; 94:6 - famous kings. * :11 135:11 VERSE 19 * Nu 21:21,23 De 2:30-36; 29:7 VERSE 20 * Nu 21:33 De 3:1-29 VERSE 21 * Ps 44:2,3; 78:55; 105:44; 135:12 Nu 32:33-42 De 3:12-17 Jos 12:1-7 * Jos 13:1-45 21:45 Ne 9:22-24 VERSE 22 * Ps 47:4 VERSE 23 - remembered. * :17 102:17; 106:43-45 Ge 8:1 De 32:36 Isa 63:9 Eze 16:3-13 * Lu 1:48,52 - in our low estate. * :12 72:12-14 7 113:7 6 116:6 6 142:6 1Sa 2:7,8 VERSE 24 * Ex 15:13 De 15:15 Pr 23:10,11 Isa 63:9 Lu 1:68-74 Tit 2:14 VERSE 25 - who giveth food. * :27 104:27; 145:15; 147:9 VERSE 26 - the God of heaven. * :1-3; 115:3; 123:1 Jon 1:9 Re 11:13 GOTO NEXT CHAPTER - TREASURY OF SCRIPTURE KNOWLEDGE INDEX
