John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
on the Whole Bible
- We must praise God as great and good in himself, verse 1-3.
- As the Creator of the world, verse 4-9.
- As Israel's God, verse 10-22.
- As our Redeemer, verse 23, 24.
- As God over all, verse 25, 26.
The God of gods - Who is infinitely superior to all that are called gods, whether angels, or princes, or idols.
Israel - He speaks of all that people as of one man, because they were united together in one body in the worship of God.
Food - To all living creatures. For which God deserves great praises, which the psalmist teaches us to render to God for them, because those who are most concerned, either cannot, or do not perform this duty.
