Psalms 145

Peake's Commentary on the BiblePeake's Commentary

Verses 1-21

CXLV. The Nature of Yahweh.— This Ps., which borrows from very late sources ( Psalms 145:13, e.g. is translated verbally from the Aramaic of Daniel 4:3), is a useful summary of the Divine attributes, as a pious Jew conceived them. For God is mighty and glorious, kindly and compassionate. At the same time, He will destroy the wicked. The Ps. is alphabetical, each verse beginning with a letter of the Heb. alphabet in due succession. By some accident the letter Nun is omitted, but the lost verse can be supplied from the LXX. It stood after Psalms 145:13 and ran, “ Faithful is Yahweh in his words and holy in all his works.”

Psalms 145:5 . Render after LXX, “ Of the glorious majesty of thine honour shall they speak, Of thy wonders shall they discourse.”

Psalms 145:9 a. Read, “ Good is Yahweh to all who wait for him” (LXX).
