PSALM CV. Chapter Overview

In the former psalm we praise God for his common providence; in this, for his special favours to his church. The first eleven verses of it David delivered to Asaph, ( 1 Chronicles 16:7, &c.) to be used in the daily service of the sanctuary. Here is the preface, verse 1-7.
The history itself in several articles: God's covenant with the patriarchs, verse 8-11.
His care of them in a strange land, verse 12-15.
His raising up Joseph, verse 16-22.
The increase of Israel in Egypt, and their deliverance out of it, verse 23-38.
His care of them in the wilderness, and their settlement in Canaan, verse 39-45.

Verse 3
Glory - Glory in the God whom you serve, as the only true God.

Verse 4
Seek - The Lord in his strength, in his sanctuary, or before the ark, which is called God's strength. Face - His gracious presence. V.5. Judgments - The punishments which he brought upon Egypt by his mere word.

Verse 13
They went - Both in Canaan, where there were seven nations, and in Egypt.

Verse 15
Anointed - My prophets, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; who are called God's anointed, because they were consecrated to be his peculiar people, and to be kings and princes in their families. And they are called prophets, because God familiarly conversed with them and revealed his will to them, and by them to others.

Verse 16
Staff of bread - Bread, which is the staff or support of our lives.

Coasts - In all their land, even to the utmost borders of it.

Verse 37
Feeble - Diseased or unable for his journey: which in so vast a body, and in a people who had been so dreadfully oppressed, was wonderful.

Covering - To protect them from the heat of the sun.

Verse 40
