Peake's Commentary on the Bible

Psalms 115

Verses 1-18

CXV. The Blindness of Idolatry and the Virtue of Utter Trust in Yahweh.

Psalms 115:2 f. An invisible god was unintelligible to the average heathen; he believed that the god was specially present in the idol, his energy being focussed there. On the other hand, the heathen did not, as the Psalmist assumes, identify idol and god.

Psalms 115:17 , like Psalms 80:5, expressed the common Jewish belief that all connexion between God and man ends with the life that now is. After death God remembers us no more.
