John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible
Psalms 108

 

 

Introduction

INTRODUCTION TO Psalm 108

A Song cf15I or Psalm of David. This psalm consists of several passages out of the fifty seventh and sixtieth psalms, with very little variation. Jarchi and Kimchi refer it to the times of the Messiah. The title in the Syriac version is,

"concerning the calling of the Gentiles,'

to which, no doubt, it has respect.

Verses 6-8

That thy beloved may be delivered,.... From hence to the end of the psalm the words are taken out of Psalm 60:5. See Gill on Psalm 60:5.

Over Philistia will I triumph,.... In Psalm 60:8, it is, "Philistia, triumph thou because of me"; See Gill on Psalm 60:8.
