PSALM 135

      Ps 135:1-21. A Psalm of praise, in which God's relations to His Church, His power in the natural world, and in delivering His people, are contrasted with the vanity of idols and idol-worship.

      1-3. In the general call for praise, the priests, that stand in the house of the Lord, are specially mentioned.

      4-7. God's choice of Israel is the first reason assigned for rendering praise; the next, His manifested greatness in creation and providence.

      6. heaven, and . . . seas, and all . . . ends of the earth--denote universality.

      8, 9. The last plague [Ex 12:29] is cited to illustrate His "tokens and wonders."

      10-12. The conquest of Canaan was by God's power, not that of the people.

      13. heritage--or, "possession."
      name . . . memorial--Each denote that by which God is made known.

      14. will judge--do justice (Ps 72:2).
      repent himself--change His dealings (Ps 90:13).

      15-18. (Compare Ps 115:4-8).

      18. are like unto them--or, "shall be like," &c. Idolaters become spiritually stupid and perish with their idols (Isa 1:31).

      19-21. (Compare Ps 115:9-11). There we have "trust" for "bless" here.

      21. out of Zion--(Compare Ps 110:2; 134:3). From the Church, as a center, His praise is diffused throughout the earth.
