Arno Gaebelein's Annotated Bible
Psalms 135



Verses 1-21

Psalm 135-136

Psalm 135

Israel’s Knowledge and Praise of the Lord

1. Knowing and praising His Name (Psalms 135:1-7)

2. Deliverances of the past remembered (Psalms 135:8-12)

3. His Name endureth forever (Psalms 135:13-21)

The last song of ascents (134) showed Israel’s praise in the sanctuary. The two Psalms which come next show this worship and praise more fully. This Psalm begins with a hallelujah and ends with a hallelujah. It will be an endless praise. The servants who stand in the house of the Lord and in the courts are called to praise Him. Israel cleansed and redeemed is now His servant (Zechariah 3:7). They are His peculiar treasure (Psalms 135:4 --Exodus 19:5). Then once more the remembrance of the deliverances of the past, the contrast with the idols of the nations (like Psalms 115:1-18) and the call to the house of Aaron, the house of Israel, the house of Levi and all that fear Him, to bless the Lord.
