Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 147

 

 

Verse 4
Calleth them - He exactly knows them as we do those whom we can call by name.
Verse 9
Ravens - Which he mentions because they were most contemptible, especially to the Jews, to whom they were unclean: and because they are not only neglected by men, but also forsaken by their dams as soon as ever they can fly, and so are wholly left to the care of Divine providence.
Verse 10
Delighteth not - As if he needed either the one or the other for the accomplishment of his designs.
Verse 13
Thy gates - Thy strength consists not in thy walls, and gates, and bars, but in his protection.
Verse 14
Borders - In all thy land, even to its utmost borders.
Verse 15
Commandment - Which is sufficient without any instruments to execute whatsoever pleaseth him. Swiftly - The thing is done without delay.
Verse 16
Like wool - Not only in colour and shape, and softness, but also in use, keeping the fruits of the earth warm. Ashes - In colour and smallness of parts, as also in its burning quality.
Verse 17
Ice - Great hail - stones, which are of an icy nature, and are cast forth out of the clouds, like morsels or fragments.
