This psalm, with the five immediately following, were called the great Hallelujah, and used to be sung at the Passover supper (Matt. 26:30). Here, (1.) We are solemnly called to celebrate the praises of God, ver. 1-3. (2.) We are plentifully furnished with matter of praise, viz. the heights of his glory and greatness, and the depths of his condescension and grace, ver. 4-9. Think, O my soul, what the Lord hath done for me, and for mine, and for mankind! 1 Praise God: ye servants of the Lord, O praise, the Lord's name praise. 2 Yea, blessed be the name of God from this time forth always. 3 From rising sun to where it sets, God's name is to be prais'd. 4 Above all nations God is high, 'bove heav'ns his glory rais'd. 5 Unto the Lord our God that dwells on high, who can compare? 6 Himself that humbleth things to see in heav'n and earth that are. 7 He from the dust doth raise the poor, that very low doth lie; And from the dunghill lifts the man oppress'd with poverty; 8 That he may highly him advance, and with the princes set; With those that of his people are the chief, ev'n princes great. 9 The barren woman house to keep he maketh, and to be Of sons a mother full of joy. Praise to the Lord give ye.
