Psalms 108

Verses 1-13

Psalms 108:0

Israel’s Praise for Salvation

1. Israel’s praise (Psalms 108:1-4 )

2. The inheritance (Psalms 108:5-9 )

3. Through God alone (Psalms 108:10-13 )

This Psalm is not a patchwork of two other Psalms as the critics declare (Psalms 72:8-12 and Psalm 60:7-14), but it comes in as a Psalm of David to give another hint on Israel’s praise in the day of deliverance. Their heart is fixed to sing His praise. It is a praise not only amongst themselves, but a praise among the nations. Where they were once a byword they are now a blessing. And their deliverance and possession they will enjoy is not of themselves; it is through God and His power. The second part of the Psalm looks back to the time when deliverance had not yet come.
