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 106:27

To overthrow their seed also among the nations ,.... Their posterity was not overthrown in the wilderness; they were spared to possess the land their fathers despised. This respects later times, as does what follows: and to scatter them in the lands ; which Kimchi explains by the discomfiture of them by the Amalekites and Canaanites, when they presumed, contrary to the will of God, to go up to the top of the hill; and by Arad's taking some of them prisoner, afterwards, Numbers 14:45 .... 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 106:27

To overthrow their seed also among the nations. Like Ezekiel ( Ezekiel 20:23 ), the writer regards the Babylonish captivity as in part a punishment for the sins committed in the wilderness. And to scatter them in the lands (comp. Le 26:33; Deuteronomy 28:64 ). The Israelites were punished, not merely by being carried into captivity, but by being completely broken up as a nation, and "scattered" widely over Western Asia—some in Gozan and on the Khabonr ( 2 Kings 17:6 ), some in Haran... read more

Albert Barnes' Notes on the Whole Bible - Psalms 106:27

To overthrow their seed also among the nations - Margin, as in Hebrew, “to make them fall;” to wit, among the surrounding people. The reference here is to the posterity of those who complained and fell in the wilderness. The result of their rebellion and complaining would not terminate with them. It would extend to their posterity, and the rebellion of the fathers would be remembered in distant generations. The overthrow of the nation, and its captivity in Babylon was thus one of the remote... read more

Joseph Benson

Joseph Benson's Commentary of the Old and New Testaments - Psalms 106:24-27

Psalms 106:24-27. They despised the pleasant land Canaan, which was so, not only in truth, but even by the relation of those spies, who discouraged them from entering into it. They preferred Egypt and their former bondage before it, Numbers 14:3-4, and did not think it deserving of a little hazard and difficulty in taking possession of it. They believed not his word His promise of giving them the land, and subduing all their enemies before them, which they knew, by late and manifold... read more

Donald C. Fleming

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
