Geneva Study Bible
Psalms 113

 

 

Verse 1
Praise ye the LORD. a Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD.

(a) By this often repetition he stirs up our cold dullness to praise God, seeing his works are so wonderful, and that we are created for the same cause.

Verse 4
The LORD [is] high above all b nations, [and] his glory above the heavens.

(b) If God's glory shines through all the world, and therefore of all ought to be praised, what great condemnation were it to his people, among whom chiefly it shines, if they should not earnestly extol his Name?

Verse 7
He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, [and] lifteth the c needy out of the dunghill;

(c) By preferring the poor to high honour and giving the barren children, he shows that God works not only in his Church by ordinary means, but also by miracles.
