Arthur Peake's Commentary on the Bible
Psalms 138

 

 

Verses 1-8

CXXXVIII. Psalms 138:1-3. The Psalmist praises Yahweh, in spite of the false gods and their worshippers, for His grace and fidelity to himself in trouble.

Psalms 138:2 c. Omit "thy word" (so LXX), and read simply, "Thou hast magnified thy name above all."

Psalms 138:3 b. The text is very doubtful. Read perhaps (cf. LXX), "Thou makest thy strength great in my soul."

Psalms 138:4-6. Even the kings of the earth shall sing Yahweh's ways, those ways by which He withdraws from the proud and reserves His intimacy for the lowly.

Psalms 138:7 f. Whatever danger may come, Yahweh will protect His worshippers.
