Bridgeway Bible Commentary - Psalms 106:1-48

Psalms 106:0 Israel’s faithlessness to GodLike the previous psalm, this psalm recounts the history of Israel. But whereas Psalms 105:0 emphasized God’s faithfulness, Psalms 106:0 emphasizes Israel’s unfaithfulness and the punishments it suffered as a result.Since God is good, people should praise and obey him. Then they will enjoy, as individuals and as a nation, the full blessings God desires for them (1-5). The psalmist admits, however, that he and those of his generation have sinned as did... read more

Thomas Coke Commentary on the Holy Bible - Psalms 106:26

Psalms 106:26. Therefore he lifted up his hand— Lifting the hand was the usual form of swearing. As the history observes, that upon their refusing to take possession of the Promised Land, God swore that themselves should perish in the wilderness, but their children should be quietly settled in the possession of it, one is tempted to translate the passage thus: "God swore that he would give them their portion in the wilderness, and that he would give their children their inheritance among the... 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
