Arno Gaebelein's Annotated Bible
Psalms 108



Verses 1-13

Psalm 108

Israel’s Praise for Salvation

1. Israel’s praise (Psalm 108:1-4)

2. The inheritance (Psalm 108:5-9)

3. Through God alone (Psalm 108:10-13)

This Psalm is not a patchwork of two other Psalms as the critics declare (Psalm 72:8-12 and Psalm 60:7-14), but it comes in as a Psalm of David to give another hint on Israel’s praise in the day of deliverance. Their heart is fixed to sing His praise. It is a praise not only amongst themselves, but a praise among the nations. Where they were once a byword they are now a blessing. And their deliverance and possession they will enjoy is not of themselves; it is through God and His power. The second part of the Psalm looks back to the time when deliverance had not yet come.
