Arthur Peake's Commentary on the Bible

Psalms 34

Verses 1-22

XXXIV. Yahweh’ s Care for His Own.— An acrostic Ps., the letter Waw being omitted as in Psalms 25. Yahweh’ s care of the poor who fear Him.

Psalms 34:5. Read with LXX, “ look to him,” “ be radiant,” “ your faces.”

Psalms 34:7 . “ The angel,” i.e. the angel who represented Yahweh ( cf. Malachi 3:1, Isaiah 63:9).

The acrostic is complete with Psalms 34:21; Psalms 34:22 is an addition for liturgical use ( cf. Psalms 25:22 *).
