PSALM 76

      Ps 76:1-12. On Neginoth--(See on Ps 4:1, title). This Psalm commemorates what the preceding anticipates: God's deliverance of His people by a signal interposition of power against their enemies. The occasion was probably the events narrated in 2Ki 19:35; Isa 37:1-28. (Compare Ps 46:1-11).

      1, 2. These well-known terms denote God's people and Church and His intimate and glorious relations to them.

      2. Salem-- (Ge 14:18) is Jerusalem.

      3. brake . . . the arrows--literally, "thunderbolts" (Ps 78:48), from their rapid flight or ignition (compare Ps 18:14; Eph 6:16).
      the battle--for arms (Ho 2:18).

      4. Thou--God.
      mountains of prey--great victorious nations, as Assyria (Isa 41:15; Eze 38:11, 12; Zec 4:7).

      5. slept their sleep--died (Ps 13:3).
      none . . . found . . . hands--are powerless.

      6. chariot and horse--for those fighting on them (compare Ps 68:17).

      7. may . . . sight--contend with Thee (De 9:4; Jos 7:12).

      8, 9. God's judgment on the wicked is His people's deliverance (Ps 9:12; 10:7).

      10. Man's wrath praises God by its futility before His power.
      restrain--or, "gird"; that is, Thyself, as with a sword, with which to destroy, or as an ornament to Thy praise.

      11, 12. Invite homage to such a God (2Ch 32:23), who can stop the breath of kings and princes when He wills (Da 5:23).
