Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable - Psalms 65:1-2

David began this song by declaring that people will pray to the Lord because He hears their prayers. They will be silent before Him out of respect. Sometimes the height of worship is to fall silent before God. His people will praise Him publicly and will fulfill their promised vows because He responds to His people’s petitions. read more

Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable - Psalms 65:1-13

Psalms 65This communal song of thanksgiving celebrates God blessing His people with a bountiful land (cf. Psalms 66-68). Other communal or community psalms of thanksgiving are 66, 107, 118, 124, and 129. The element that distinguishes a communal psalm of thanksgiving from an individual psalm of thanksgiving is "the use of plural pronouns or some other clear indicator that the congregation of Israel, rather than the individual, has gone through the crisis." [Note: Bullock, p. 163.] David... read more

John Dummelow's Commentary on the Bible - Psalms 65:1-13

The allusions to the Temple worship show that this Ps. belongs to a later age than David’s. As to its occasion we can gather that a national religious festival at Jerusalem was in view (Psalms 65:1-4), that a striking national deliverance had produced a wide-spread impression of God’s power (Psalms 65:5-8), and that a favourable season gave promise of an abundant harvest (Psalms 65:9-13). The presentation of the firstfruits at the Passover (Leviticus 23:10-14) would suit the first and last... read more

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers - Psalms 65:2

(2) Unto thee shall all flesh come.—This has usually, and most truly, been taken as prophetic of the extension of the true religion to the Gentiles. But we must not let what was, in the Divine providence, a fulfilment of the psalmist’s words, hide their intention as it was conscious to himself. The psalm shows us the exclusiveness of Hebrew belief, and, at the same time, the nobler and grander feelings which are from time to time found struggling against it. The peculiar privilege of Israel has... read more

Expositor's Dictionary of Texts - Psalms 65:1-13

The Mystery of Prayer Psalms 65:2 Instructive as we feel our prayers to be, when we try to think quietly what they mean, what they involve, we are often haunted by misgivings and difficulties. I. Problems of Prayer. Prayer in the sense of communion between the Divine and the human Spirit we can understand, but prayer in the sense of definite petitions can I seriously hope that God will change the vast complicated order of things in answer to a momentary request from a single one of His... read more

William Nicoll

Expositor's Bible Commentary - Psalms 65:1-13

Psalms 65:1-13THIS and the two following psalms form a little group, with one great thought dominant in each, namely, that God’s manifestations of grace and providence to Israel are witnesses to the world. They all reach out to "the ends of the earth" in yearning and confidence that God’s name will be adored there, and they all regard His dealings with His people as His appeals to mankind, which will not always be vain. Psalms 65:1-13 begins with that privilege of approach to God with which... read more

Arno Gaebelein's Annotated Bible - Psalms 65:1-13

Psalms 65:0 The Times of Restitution and Refreshing 1. Spiritual blessings (Psalms 65:1-5 ) 2. Earthly glories and blessing (Psalms 65:6-13 ) The four next Psalms unfold prophetically the times of restitution of all things as spoken by the mouth of His holy prophets since the world began. Here we get the visions of Israel’s restoration, her spiritual blessings and her praise unto the Lord, and what will be the result for the nations and for all creation. We recommend a careful study in... read more
