Psalms 115

Verses 1-18

Psalms 115:0

Who Their God is?

1. Israel’s God (Psalms 115:1-3 )

2. In Contrast with Idols (Psalms 115:4-8 )

3. O Israel Trust in the Lord (Psalms 115:9-18 )

Here Israel acknowledges her Saviour-Lord, unto Him alone is glory due. The nations had asked, Where is now their God? (Psalms 43:3 ; Psalms 79:10 ) The Contrast between the God of Israel and the dumb idols of the nations follows. But Israel’s God, the Lord, who has delivered them, is the living God and therefore the exhortation to trust Him who blesseth His people. Israel’s resolve closes this Psalm: “But we will praise the LORD, from this time forth forevermore. Hallelujah.”
