Psalms 108:5-6 Meaning and Commentary

INTRODUCTION TO PSALM 108

\\<>\\. This psalm consists of several passages out of the fifty seventh and sixtieth psalms, with very little variation. Jarchi and Kimchi refer it to the times of the Messiah. The title in the Syriac version is, ``concerning the calling of the Gentiles,'' to which, no doubt, it has respect.

3 I'm thanking you, God, out in the streets, singing your praises in town and country.
4 The deeper your love, the higher it goes; every cloud's a flag to your faithfulness.
5 Soar high in the skies, O God! Cover the whole earth with your glory!
6 And for the sake of the one you love so much, reach down and help me - answer me!
7 That's when God spoke in holy splendor: "Brimming over with joy, I make a present of Shechem, I hand out Succoth Valley as a gift.
8 Gilead's in my pocket, to say nothing of Manasseh. Ephraim's my hard hat, Judah my hammer.
