Dummelow's Commentary on the Bible

Psalms 148

Verses 1-14

This is the ’Gloria in Excelsis’ of the Psalter, wherein all created things, animate and inanimate, are called upon to praise Jehovah.

1. From the heavens] i.e. angels and the heavenly bodies.

4. Waters that be above the heavens] So God divided the waters: see Genesis 1:6, Genesis 1:7.

6. Which shall not pass] RM’which none shall transgress.’

8. Vapours] smoke or steam: cp. Psalms 119:83.

13. Excellent] RV ’exalted.’

14. RM ’a horn for his people, a praise for all his saints,’ i.e. the giving victory to God’s people (’exalting the horn’) is a subject of praise.
