Benson's Commentary of the Old and New Testaments

2 Samuel 22

Introduction

A.M. 2986. B.C. 1018.

This chapter is inserted among the Psalms, with some little variation. It is here as it was composed for his own closet; there, as it was delivered to the chief musician for public service. The inspired writer, having largely related David’s deliverances in this and the foregoing book, thought fit to record this sacred poem, as a memorial of all that had been before related.

We shall defer making any remarks on this divine Ode, till we come to its proper place in Psalms 18:0.
