Matthew Henry's Complete Commentary - Psalms 106:13-33

This is an abridgment of the history of Israel's provocations in the wilderness, and of the wrath of God against them for those provocations: and this abridgment is abridged by the apostle, with application to us Christians (1 Cor. 10:5); for these things were written for our admonition, that we sin not like them, lest we suffer like them. I. The cause of their sin was disregard to the works and word of God, Ps. 106:13. 1. They minded not what he had done for them: They soon forgot his works,... read more

John Gills Exposition of the Bible Commentary - Psalms 106:21

They forgat God their Saviour ,.... Not only forgat the works of God, Psalm 106:13 , but forgat God that did those mighty works; forgat that there was a God; or however forgat him that is the only true and living God, when they said of the molten image, "these are thy gods, O Israel"; and what aggravated their crime was, they forgot that God that had saved them in so wonderful a manner out of the hand of their enemies, for his own name's sake; and had led them safely through the Red sea as... read more

John Calvin

John Calvin's Commentary on the Bible - Psalms 106:21

Verse 21 21.They forgot God The prophet again repeats that the people had sinned not simply through ignorance, but also wilfully, inasmuch as God had already given a very palpable manifestation of his power and glory. And as he makes himself known in the creation of the heavens and of the earth, the blindness of men is totally inexcusable. But far more aggravating is the sin of the children of Israel, who, after God had made himself known to them, in the most condescending manner, cast him off... read more

The Pulpit Commentary - Psalms 106:1-48

The nevertheless of God's mercy. This is actually expressed in Psalms 106:44 , but it is the theme of the whole psalm. Note concerning it— I. IT IMPLIES PREVIOUS AND TERRIBLE PROVOCATION . And, indeed, there had been such: 1 . In sins actually committed. What a catalogue of them the psalm contains! Sin at the very beginning ( Psalms 106:7 ). The former psalm reviewed the history of God's people as a subject for adoring praise, because of God's never-failing... read more

The Pulpit Commentary - Psalms 106:6-39

Sin in many forms. It is not only the psalmist who says, "I will confess my transgressions unto the Lord" ( Psalms 32:5 ). It becomes us all to say, "We have sinned … we have committed iniquity" ( Psalms 106:6 ). Sin takes many forms, as this psalm makes clear. We may be guilty of— I. SINFUL FAILURE TO UNDERSTAND . ( Psalms 106:7 .) As the children of Israel "understood not God's wonders in Egypt," so we guiltily fail to recognize the wonderful working of the Divine hand,... read more

Spence, H. D. M., etc.

The Pulpit Commentary - Psalms 106:6-46

The psalmist now enters on his main subject—the transgressions of Israel in the past, and God's manifold mercies vouchsafed to them. These he traces from the time of the Exodus ( Psalms 106:7 ) to that of the Babylonish captivity ( Psalms 106:46 ). read more

Spence, H. D. M., etc.

The Pulpit Commentary - Psalms 106:21

They forgat God their Saviour (comp. Psalms 106:13 ). "God their Saviour" is "God who had so recently saved them out of the hands of Pharaoh." Which had done great things in Egypt. The allusion is principally to the long series of "plagues." read more

Joseph Benson

Joseph Benson's Commentary of the Old and New Testaments - Psalms 106:19-23

Psalms 106:19-23. They made a calf in Horeb When they were but very lately brought out of Egypt, by such wonderful power and goodness of God, and had seen the dreadful plagues of God upon the Egyptian idolaters, and upon their idols too, as is observed Numbers 33:4; and when the law of God was but newly delivered to them, in such a solemn and tremendous manner; and the most high God was yet present, and delivering further precepts to Moses for their benefit upon the top of that very mount.... read more
