Psalms 96

Peake's Commentary on the BiblePeake's Commentary

Verses 1-13

XCVI. The Praise of Yahweh in Israel, among the Nations, in all Creation.— This Ps. is inserted with considerable variations, in 1 Chronicles 16:23-33, probably by a later hand, and not by the Chronicler himself. It is largely compiled from other sources, notably from 2 Is.

Psalms 96:1 . a new song: a song evoked by some new and startling event. The phrase occurs in Isaiah 42:10, where it is much more in place.

Psalms 96:5 . Read mg. but the meaning of Heb. is doubtful.

Psalms 96:6 . sanctuary: i.e. the “ heavens.” 1 Ch. has “ place.”

Psalms 96:9 . Translate in holy array ( mg.) ; but “ on the holy mountains,” i.e. on the heights of Zion, is a plausible emendation.

Psalms 96:13 expresses the Messianic hope in a general form. But here, as in Malachi 4:6, there is no thought of any personal Messiah. Yahweh Himself is the deliverer.
