Verse 1

108:1 [A Song [or] Psalm of David.] O God, my heart is {a} fixed; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.

(a) This earnest affection declares that he is free from hypocrisy and that sluggishness does not stop him.

Verse 3

108:3 I will praise thee, O LORD, among the {b} people: and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.

(b) He prophecies of the calling of the Gentiles: for unless they were called, they could not hear the goodness of God.

Verse 5

108:5 {c} Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory above all the earth;

(c) Let all the world see your judgments in that you are God over all, and so confess that you are glorious.

Verse 6

108:6 That thy beloved may be delivered: {d} save [with] thy right hand, and answer me.

(d) When God by his benefits makes us partakers of his mercies, he admonishes us to be earnest in prayer, to desire him to continue and finish his graces.

Verse 7

108:7 God hath spoken in his {e} holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.

(e) As he has spoken to Samuel concerning me, so will he show himself constant and holy in his promise, so that these nations following will be subject to me.

108:11 {f} [Wilt] not [thou], O God, [who] hast cast us off? and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts?

(f) From the sixth verse of this psalm to the last, read also Psalms 60:5.
