\\INTRODUCTION TO PSALM 135\\

This psalm was written very probably by the same hand as the former. It
begins in much the same manner; it has some likeness with Psalm 113 and
114. It begins and ends with "hallelujah"; and is throughout an
exhortation of praise to God, on account of his name, nature, and
perfections; and because of his works of creation, providence, and
grace, many of which are enumerated. The Syriac interpreter says, there
is an intimation in it of the conversion of the people of the Messiah
unto the faith.
