Psalms 107

Introduction

Overview

Psalms 107:1, The psalmist exhorts the redeemed, in praising God, to observe his manifold providence, Psalms 107:4, over travellers; Psalms 107:10, over captives; Psalms 107:17, over sick men; Psalms 107:23, over seamen; Psalms 107:33, and in divers varieties of life.

Verse 1

am 3468, bc 536 - Title The author of this Psalm is unknown; but it was evidently written to commemorate the return of the Jews from the Babylonian captivity; and it may easily be perceived that it must have been sung in alternate parts, having a double burden, or two intercalary verses often recurring. Bp. Lowth considers it as written "after the method of the ancient pastorals, where, be the subject of their verse what it will, each swain endeavours to excel the other; and one may perceive their thoughts and expressions gradually to rise upon each other." "No doubt," he adds, "the composition of this Psalm is admirable throughout; and the descriptive part of it adds at least its share of beauty to the whole; but what is most to be admired is its conciseness, and withal the expressiveness of the diction, which strikes the imagination with illimitable elegance. The weary and bewildered traveller - the miserable captive in the dungeon - the sick and dying man - the seaman foundering in a storm - are described in so affecting a manner, that they far exceed anything of the kind, though never so much laboured."

Again: The incidents detailed in these verses, which frequently occur, and mark the superintendence of a benign Providence, and the hand of a just God, appear to be brought forward to illustrate the return of the Israelites from captivity, and the punishment of their oppressors the Babylonians. Wherefore, at last, as in a common chorus, they conclude with exhorting each other to a serious consideration of these things, and to make a proper return to the Almighty.
