Psalm Chapter 108

Psalm Chapter 108

Context

Psalm 108 combines both Psalm 57: verses 7–11 (verses 1–5) and Psalm 60:5–12 (verses 6–13), with some minor changes. However, when the verses are combined, they produce a different tone in the psalm. Although it is a combined psalm, it is still a continuous psalm with a flow of concepts. However, Psalm 57 is an individual lament, and Psalm 60 is a communal lament, but Psalm 108 is a psalm of affirmation that applies previous psalms to construct a prayer ‘for Yahweh’s “day of vengeance” when he establishes his kingdom here on earth. See the Scriptures references here.

1 O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory. Awake, psaltery, and harp: I myself will awake early. I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.

For thy mercy is great above the heavens: and thy truth reacheth unto the clouds. Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory above all the earth; That thy beloved may be delivered: save with thy right hand, and answer me. The psalmist gives reasons for why he praises God here. Paul states 2 Corinthians 12:2 “I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such a one caught up to the third heaven.” He was exalted to a place of praise that he had not experienced before.

God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth. Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver; Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe; over Philistia will I triumph.

10 Who will bring me into the strong city? Who will lead me into Edom? 11 Wilt, not thou, O God, who hast cast us off? And wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts? 12 Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man. 13 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.
