Psalms 106

Introduction

1The psalmist exhorts to praise God.
4He prays for pardon of sin, as God pardoned the fathers.
7The story of the people's rebellion, and God's mercy.
47He concludes with prayer and praise.

Verse 1

Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
(Title
&) As part of the preceding Psalm is found in 1 Ch ch. 16, so the first and two last verses of this are found in the same place; and it is highly probable this was composed upon the same occasion as the former, to which it seems to be a continuation; for as that celebrates the mercies of God to Israel, so this confesses and deplores the rebellions of Israel against Jehovah.
Praise ye the Lord

Lowth supposes we should read zeraƶn, "nausea or loathing," which appears to be supported by several ancient versions, and by Nu 11:20, where this portion of the history of the Israelites is recorded, and where the word zara is used, and rendered, "it be loathsome."
