Psalms 106

1 The psalmist exhorts to praise God.

4 He prays for pardon of sin, as God pardoned the fathers.

7 The story of the people's rebellion, and God's mercy.

47 He concludes with prayer and praise.

(Title.)As part of the preceding Psalm is found in 1 Ch ch. 16, so the first and two last verses of this are found in the same place; and it is highly probable this was composed upon the same occasion as the former, to which it seems to be a continuation; for as that celebrates the mercies of God to Israel, so this confesses and deplores the rebellions of Israel against Jehovah.

Praise ye the Lord. Heb. Hallelujah.

but sent.They despised the manna, calling it light or innutritive food. God gave them flesh as they desired, but no blessing accompanied it; and, in consequence, they did not fatten, but grew lean upon it; and many, surfeited by excess, died of disease. Instead of {razon,} "leanness," however, Bp. Lowth supposes we should read {zeraön,} "nausea or loathing," which appears to be supported by several ancient versions, and by Nu 11:20, where this portion of the history of the Israelites is recorded, and where the word {zara} is used, and rendered, "it be loathsome."

Wondrous.The plagues he inflicted on the Egyptians. Egypt is called the land of Ham, or rather, Cham, because it was peopled by Mizraim the son of Ham, and grandson of Noah. Plutarch informs us, that the Egyptians called their country [Chemia,] Chemia; and the Copts give it the name of Chemi, [Chemi,] to the present day.
