Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO PSALM 97\\

This psalm is ascribed to David by the Septuagint, Vulgate Latin,
Syriac, Arabic, and Ethiopic versions. It is of the same argument, and
upon the same subject, as the preceding, the coming and kingdom of
Christ; and that it respects his first coming into the world, when
angels were called upon to worship him, appears from \\#Ps 97:7\\
compared with \\#Heb 1:6\\ though it is expressed in such language as
seems to agree with his second coming; and, perhaps, both are
included, with various things between the one and the other; or it
respects the kingdom of Christ, from his first to his second coming;
to which agrees the inscription of the Syriac version, which is

``a Psalm of David, in which he prophesies concerning the
coming of the Messiah, and again he intimates in it his last
appearance.''
