108 This Psalm is composed of two other Psalms before the seven and fiftieth and the sixtieth. The matter here contained is, 1 That David giveth himself with heart and voice to praise the Lord, 7 and assureth himself of the promise of God concerning his kingdom over Israel, and his power against other nations: 11 Who though he seem to forsake us for a time, yet he alone will in the end cast down our enemies.
A song or Psalm of David.
1 O God, mine heart is[a]prepared, so is[b]my tongue: I will sing and give praise.
2 Awake viol and harp, I will awake early.
Psalm 108:1This earnest affection declareth that he is free from hypocrisy, and that sluggishness stayeth him not.
Psalm 108:1Or, my glory, because it chiefly setteth forth the glory of God.
