This psalm was penned by David, and sung at the time when the ark was
brought from the house of Obededom to the place which David had
prepared for it; at least the first fifteen verses of it, the other
part being probably added afterwards by the same inspired penman, as
appears from \\#1Ch 16:1-7\\. The subject matter of the psalm is the
special and distinguishing goodness of God to the children of Israel,
and to his church and people, of which they were typical: the history
of God's regard to and care of their principal ancestors, Abraham,
Jacob, Joseph and of the whole body of the people, in bringing
them out of Egypt, leading them through the wilderness, and settling
them in the land of Canaan, is here recited, as an argument for
praise and thankfulness.
