16-18. All the congregation took part with Dathan, Korah, c., and their accomplices ( :-). Aaron the saint—literally, "the holy one," as consecrated priest not a moral attribute, but one designating his office as holy to the Lord. The rebellion was followed by a double punishment: (1) of the non-Levitical rebels, the Reubenites, Dathan and Abiram, c. (Deuteronomy 11:6 Numbers 26:10); these were swallowed up by the earth. read more

Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable - Psalms 106:1-48

Psalms 106This psalm recalls Israel’s unfaithfulness to God, whereas Psalms 105 stressed God’s faithfulness to the nation. Even though God’s people proved unfaithful to Him, He remained faithful to them because of His covenant promises (cf. 1 Chronicles 16:34-36; Nehemiah 9; Isaiah 63:7 to Isaiah 64:12; Daniel 9; 2 Timothy 2:13). read more

Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable - Psalms 106:13-33

The writer did not recount Israel’s rebellions in the wilderness in strict chronological sequence. His concern was to build from less serious acts of rebellion to greater ones, evidently for the emotional effect this would produce in the reader.Psalms 106:13-15 describe the rebellion at Kibroth-hattaavah when the Israelites demanded meat and God sent them quails (Numbers 11:4-34; cf. Lot, and the Prodigal Son). Psalms 106:16-18 recall the rebellion of Dathan and Abiram against Moses (Numbers... read more

John Dummelow's Commentary on the Bible - Psalms 106:1-48

As Psalms 105 gives thanks for God’s goodness, so Psalms 106 confesses Israel’s sin and acknowledges God’s mercy, both being illustrated in an historical retrospect from the deliverance from Egypt down to the return from captivity: cp. Psalms 78; Ezekiel 20.1. See on Psalms 100:5. 7. Provoked him] RV ’were rebellious.’ So in Psalms 106:33, Psalms 106:43. 8. For his name’s sake] see Ezekiel 20:14. 26. Lifted up his hand] sware. To overthrow] RV ’that he would overthrow.’ So in Psalms 106:27. 28.... read more

The Biography of a Soul Psalms 106:12-14 I. They believed His words. I venture to say there is not a soul who cannot recall, at least once or twice, such hours of vivid deliverance, when God's power thrust itself into your life and made clear your path before you. It may require perhaps a certain effort on your part to remember just at once such times of Divine interposition, but they are there none the less. They come in different ways. ( a ) Perhaps it was that day when some one dearer to... read more

William Nicoll

Expositor's Bible Commentary - Psalms 106:1-48

Psalms 106:1-48THE history of God’s past is a record of continuous mercies, the history of man’s, one of as continuous sin. The memory of the former quickened the psalmist into his sunny song of thankfulness in the previous psalm. That of the latter moves him to the confessions in this one. They are complements of each other, and are connected not only as being both retrospective, but by the identity of their beginnings and the difference of their points of view. The parts of the early history... read more

Arno Gaebelein's Annotated Bible - Psalms 106:1-48

Psalms 105:0 and 106 The Memories of the Past The last two Psalms of this fourth section review the entire history of Israel up to the time of the judges. It is the story of God’s faithfulness and mercy, and the story of their shameful failure and apostasy. He is ever mindful of His covenant, and that covenant is mentioned first, as the foundation of all. Then how He watched over them. The story of Joseph is mentioned, followed by the rehearsal of the deliverance out of Egypt. Psalms 106:1-48... read more
