Whedon's Commentary on the Bible
Psalms 108



Verse 1

1. Even with my glory—Or, Yea, my glory; that is, in my proper rank and renown as king and conqueror. David rouses all his powers of person and office to the delightful duty of praise. In Psalms 57:8, it is joined to the imperative, “Awake up, my glory.” In Genesis 49:6, “glory,” or honour, is used as a synonyme of soul, but generally of rank, honour, as Psalms 4:2; Psalms 7:5

Verse 3

3. Lord—Jehovah; in Psalms 57:9, אדני, (Adonah,) Lord.

Verse 5

5. Above the heavens—For unto the heavens. Psalms 57:10

Verse 9

9. Over Philistia will I triumph—The declarative, here, instead of the imperative, as Psalms 60:8. Here the psalmist confidently predicts that he will shout as a victor over Philistia; there, he calls upon Philistia to break out in the cry of a captive. See note there.
