Psalms 113 Commentary - Matthew Henry Commentary on the Whole Bible (Concise)

Chapter 113

An exhortation to praise God.

- God has praise from his own people. They have most reason to praise him; for those who attend him as his servants, know him best, and receive most of his favours, and it is easy, pleasant work to speak well of their Master. God's name ought to be praised in every place, from east to west. Within this wide space the Lord's name is to be praised; it ought to be so, though it is not. Ere long it will be, when all nations shall come and worship before him. God is exalted above all blessing and praise. We must therefore say, with holy admiration, Who is like unto the Lord our God? How condescending in him to behold the things in the earth! And what amazing condescension was it for the Son of God to come from heaven to earth, and take our nature upon him, that he might seek and save those that were lost! How vast his love in taking upon him the nature of man, to ransom guilty souls! God sometimes makes glorious his own wisdom and power, when, having some great work to do, he employs those least likely, and least thought of for it by themselves or others. The apostles were sent from fishing to be fishers of men. And this is God's constant method in his kingdom of grace. He takes men, by nature beggars, and even traitors, to be his favourites, his children, kings and priests unto him; and numbers them with the princes of his chosen people. He gives us all our comforts, which are generally the more welcome when long delayed, and no longer expected. Let us pray that those lands which are yet barren, may speedily become fruitful, and produce many converts to join in praising the Lord.

Psalms 113 Commentary - Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible

PSALM 113

Psalms 113:1-9 . God's majesty contrasted with His condescension and gracious dealings towards the humble furnish matter and a call for praise. The Jews, it is said, used this and Psalms 114-118 on their great festivals, and called them the Greater Hallel, or Hymn.

1-3. Earnestness and zeal are denoted by the emphatic repetitions.
servants of the Lord--or, all the people of God.
name of the Lord--perfections ( Psalms 5:11 , 111:9 ).

3. From the rising, &c.--all the world.

4-6. God's exaltation enhances His condescension;

7, 8. which condescension is illustrated as often in raising the worthy poor and needy to honor (compare 1 Samuel 2:8 , Psalms 44:25 ).

9. On this special case, compare 1 Samuel 2:21 . Barrenness was regarded as a disgrace, and is a type of a deserted Church ( Isaiah 54:1 ).
the barren woman . . . house--literally, "the barren of the house," so that the supplied words may be omitted.
