      1  An exhortation both to learn and to preach, the law of God.
     9  The story of God's wrath against the incredulous and
        disobedient.
    67  The Israelites being rejected, God chose Judah, Zion, and
        David.
    
    
    VERSE 1
    - A.M. 3074.  B.C. 930.  (Title.)  Maschil.  or, A Psalm for
      Asaph, to give instruction.
       * :1 74:1 *title
      This Psalm was probably written, as Calmet and others suppose,
      by Asaph in the days of Asa, who had gained, by the aid of the
      Syrians, a great victory over the Israelites, and brought back
      to the pure worship of God many out of the tribes of Ephraim,
      Manasseh, and Simeon.
    
       * 2Ch 15:1-14 16:14
    
    - See on Ps.
       * Ps 49:1-3; 51:4 Jud 5:3 Pr 8:4-6 Isa 51:4; 55:3 Mt 13:9

     - For he.
       * :5 81:5 119:152 19 147:19 De 4:45; 6:7; 11:19 Isa 8:20 Ro 3:2
       * 1Jo 5:9-12
    - testimony.
      The word testimony is used for the ark, and for the law,
      written on tables of stone, put within the ark, and covered
      with the mercy seat.  This testified the Lord's gracious
      presence with his people, and seemed to point out to them both
      the way of access and acceptance, and the standard or rule of
      their duty.
    
       * Ex 25:16,21; 40:3,20
    - that they.
       * :3,4 Ge 18:19 Isa 38:19 Eph 6:4
    
    
    VERSE 6 
     - That.

     - set.
       * Ps 40:4; 62:5; 91:14; 130:6,7; 146:5 Jer 17:7,8 1Pe 1:21
    - not forget.
       * :10 77:10-12 2 103:2 5 105:5 Ex 12:24-27 De 4:9; 7:18,19; 8:2,11
       * Es 9:27,28 1Co 11:24
    - keep.

       * :6 68:6 106:7 Ex 32:9; 33:3,5; 34:9 De 9:6,13; 31:27 2Ki 17:14

    - set not.  Heb. prepared not.
       * :37 2Ch 12:14; 19:3; 20:33; 30:19
    - whose.
       * :37 De 4:4 Jos 14:8,9 Ac 11:23
    
    
    VERSE 9 
     - The children.
      Some think this refers to a defeat of the Ephraimites
      mentioned in 1 Ch 20 7:20-22; but it probably refers to the
      conduct and defeat of the ten tribes of which Ephraim was the
      head.  Nothing is recorded in the history of Israel concerning
      the cowardice of the Ephraimites, as distinct from that of the
      other tribes:  some therefore think, "that the children of
      Ephraim" is put by a figure of speech for the nation in
      general.
    
       * De 1:41-44 Jos 17:16-18 1Sa 4:10; 31:1
    - carrying.  Heb. throwing forth.  turned.

     - Marvellous.
       * :42-50; 105:27-38; 135:9 Ex 7:1-51 12:51 De 4:34; 6:22 Ne 9:10
    - Zoan.
      Zoan, the ancient capital of the Pharaohs, where Moses wrought
      so many miracles, is rendered by the Chaldee, {Tanium,} LXX.
      [    ,] Vulgate, {Tanis,} and Coptic, {Tan‚,} from the Coptic,
      {ten,} plain, flat, level; being situated in the low ground of
      the Delta, on one of the eastern branches of the Nile, bearing
      its own name, near a large lake, now called the lake of
      Menzala, 44 miles west of Pelusium, and 169 miles east of
      Alexandria, according to the Antonine Itinerary, and three
      miles from the Mediterranean, according to the Geograph.
      Nubiens. Clim. 3, par. 3.  There are ruins still remaining to
      mark the site of Zoan, or Tanis, called San by the Arabs;
      comprising broken obelisks, capitals of the Corinthian order,
      a granite monument, etc.

    - the corn of heaven.
      The manna fell about their camp in the form of seeds; and as
      it appeared to come down from the clouds, it was not
      improperly termed {degan shamayim,} the corn of heaven or
      heavenly grain.  See notes on Ex 16:22, 31.
    
    
    VERSE 25 
     - Man, etc.
      Or, Every one did eat the bread of the mighty.  {Lechem
      abbeerim,} "bread of the mighty:"-- they ate such food as
      could only be expected at the tables of the rich and great;--
      the best, the most delicate food.  Or, it might be so called
      because it rendered the people healthy and vigorous, and fit
      for their marches.

      {Ail ‚lyon go„lom,} "the strong God, the Most High, their
      redeemer," or kinsman:  that one who possessed the right of
      redemption; the nearest akin to him who had forfeited his
      inheritance, as the word originally means; and hence is used
      for a redeemer; and here denotes Him who redeemed them from
      Egyptian bondage.
    
    - their redeemer.

    - a wind.
      Or, as the Hebrew {roo„ch holaich welo yashoov} may be
      rendered, "the spirit goeth away and returneth not again."  To
      this purpose the Arabic, "He remembered that they were flesh;
      and a spirit which when it departs, returneth not again."  The
      human being is composed of flesh and spirit, or body and soul:
      these are easily separated, and when separated, the body turns
      to dust, and the spirit returns no more to animate the body in
      a state of probation.

      The miracles mentioned in this and the four subsequent verses,
      evidently shew the power of God over the elements of nature,
      which at that time were the objects of Egyptian worship.

    - the caterpillar.
      {Chosal,} from {chasal,} to consume, eat up, is rendered [   ]
      by the LXX., in 2 Ch 28 6:28, and Aquila here, and also the
      Vulgate in Chron. and Isa 33:4 and Jerome here, {bruchus,} the
      chaffer, which every one knows to be a great devourer of the
      leaves of trees.  The Syriac in Joel 4 1:4; 25 2:25, renders it
      {tzartzooro,} which Michaelis, from the Arabic {tzartzar,} a
      cricket, interprets the mole-cricket, which in its grub state
      is also very destructive to corn, grass, and other vegetables,
      by cankering the roots on which it feeds.
    
    
    VERSE 47 
     - destroyed.  or, killed.  with hail.
       * :32 105:32,33 Ex 9:18-34
    - sycamore.
      From the value of the sycamore in furnishing wood for various
      uses, from the grateful shade which its wide spreading
      branches afforded, and on account of the fruit, which Mr.
      Maillet says the Egyptians hold in the highest estimation, we
      may conceive somewhat of the loss they sustained when "their
      vines were destroyed with hail; and their sycamore trees with
      frost."  See Note on 1 Ch 28 27:28.
    
    - frost.  or, great hailstones.
    
    
    VERSE 48 
     - gave up.  Heb. shut up.  hot thunderbolts.  or, lightnings.
