Coffman Commentaries on the Bible - Psalms 105:11

"Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan,The lot of your inheritance;When they were but a few men in number,Yea, very few, and sojourning in it.And they went about from nation to nation.From one kingdom to another people.He suffered no man to do them wrong;Yea, he reproved kings for their sakes,Saying, Touch not mine anointed ones,And do my prophets no harm."These verses conclude the portion of the psalm which is given in 1Chronicles."I will give thee the land of Canaan" (Psalms... read more

Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable - Psalms 105:1-45

Psalms 105This psalm praises God for His faithful dealings with Israel. It reviews Israel’s history from Abraham to the wilderness wanderings (cf. 1 Chronicles 16:9-36), and the Abrahamic Covenant is its centerpiece. read more

Thomas Constable

Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable - Psalms 105:7-11

God remembered His people (Psalms 105:7, cf. Psalms 105:42), so His people should remember Him (Psalms 105:5). God had been faithful to the Abrahamic Covenant (Genesis 12:1-3; Genesis 12:7; Genesis 15:18-21; Genesis 22:15-18; Genesis 28:13-15). He made this covenant with Abraham’s descendants as well as with him personally. A "thousand generations" means innumerable generations (cf. Exodus 20:5-6). Note that the psalmist called this covenant an "everlasting covenant" (Psalms 105:10). That is,... read more

John Dummelow's Commentary on the Bible - Psalms 105:1-45

This Ps. and the following one form a closely connected pair, and may be looked on as by the same author. From the closing vv. of Psalms 106 it appears that they were written after the first return from exile had taken place, but while many Israelites were still scattered among the heathen. Both Pss. are partly wrought into the composite poem in 1 Chronicles 16. Psalms 105 is a song of thanksgiving, recalling with gratitude God’s covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Psalms 105:8-12), His... read more

William Nicoll

Expositor's Dictionary of Texts - Psalms 105:1-45

The Trial of Joseph Psalms 105:19 The career of Joseph is of the kind to which we give the name of romance. That word is a vague one, and it would cost us some pains to define; but we all think we know a romance when we hear it, and the tale of Joseph is one. A boy of genius, hated by his brothers because he was a genius and knew it, led through startling vicissitudes of fortune, from a father's partial love to the estate of slave, from the black arch of a dungeon to the splendour round a... read more

William Nicoll

Expositor's Bible Commentary - Psalms 105:1-45

Psalms 105:1-45IT is a reasonable conjecture that the Hallelujah at the end of Psalms 104:1-35, where it is superfluous, properly belongs to this psalm, which would then be assimilated to Psalms 106:1-48, which is obviously a companion psalm. Both are retrospective and didactic; but Psalms 105:1-45 deals entirely with God’s unfailing faithfulness to Israel, while Psalms 106:1-48 sets forth the sad contrast presented by Israel’s continual faithlessness to God. Each theme is made more impressive... read more
