Expositor's Dictionary of Texts - Psalms 106:1-48

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

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

James Gray

James Gray's Concise Bible Commentary - Psalms 106:1-48

The first psalm in this lesson suggests Psalms 74:0 on which we did not dwell, but both of which depict the desolations of Judah by the Babylonians (compare Jeremiah 52:12-14 ). On this supposition their date would be that of the captivity, and their author a later Asaph than the Asaph mentioned in David’s time. Psalms 80:0 Has captivity features also. Some would say it relates to the ten tribes, as the preceding psalm does to Judah. The next several psalms are much alike in this respect and... read more

The People's Bible by Joseph Parker - Psalms 106:1-48

Spiritual Declension Psa 106:12-14 We have in these three lines some of the greatest words in human history, and some of the most vivid experiences of human life. We seem to need no one to expound these words to us they are written upon our memory, and they are inwrought, so to speak, into the very substance of our consciousness. We do not need to go back a thousand years and more to find out whether these things are historically true. Every man who knows himself accepts them every one. We... read more

Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary - Psalms 106:24-39

For the same reason as before, I include the whole of what is here rehearsed in one reading. But let not the Reader be as brief upon the interesting things here recorded. Let him consult the several parts of the Jewish history in the Bible, to which they refer. See Numbers 13:0 ; Numbers 14:0 . And let him recollect that despising Christ and his salvation in the present day, becomes a parallel history, only with ten thousand more aggravated circumstances of guilt and ingratitude, than what here... read more

Matthew Henry

Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on the Bible - Psalms 106:13-33

13-33 Those that will not wait for God's counsel, shall justly be given up to their own hearts' lusts, to walk in their own counsels. An undue desire, even for lawful things, becomes sinful. God showed his displeasure for this. He filled them with uneasiness of mind, terror of conscience, and self-reproach. Many that fare deliciously every day, and whose bodies are healthful, have leanness in their souls: no love to God, no thankfulness, no appetite for the Bread of life, and then the soul must... read more

The Popular Commentary by Paul E. Kretzmann - Psalms 106:1-48

God's Blessings in Spite of Israel's Unfaithfulness. This psalm, whose author is not known, gives a detailed confession of the sins of Israel, as contrasted with the wonders of God's mercy, the conclusion being a supplication for God's favor. v. 1. Praise ye the Lord, for the attitude of praise should characterize the believers at all times. O give thanks unto the Lord; for He is good, He has revealed himself to men in the beauty of His goodness; for His mercy endureth forever, the hand of... read more
