Psalms 78:35 Meaning and Commentary

Psalms 78:35

And they remembered that God was their Rock
Who had delivered them out of the hands of their enemies, had strengthened them against them, and supported and protected them, as well as supplied them with all good things, of whom they had been greatly unmindful; but affliction was a means of refreshing their memory; see ( Deuteronomy 32:15 Deuteronomy 32:18 ) ,

and the high God their Redeemer;
who had redeemed them out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage, with a high hand and a mighty arm, and thereby showed himself to be the most high God: between this and the following verse the Masorah puts this note,

``half of the book,''

i.e. half of the book of Psalms ends here.

33 So God brought their days to an end, like a puff of air, and their years in total ruin.
34 But whenever God killed them, they went after him! They would turn and earnestly search for God.
35 They would remember that God was their rock, that the Most High was their redeemer.
36 But they were just flattering him with lip service. They were lying to him with their tongues.
37 Their hearts weren't firmly set on him; they weren't faithful to his covenant.
