Psalms 107-150 translated with comment

PSALM 108

This is a composite psalm, verses 1-5 = Psalm 57: 7-11 and verses 6-13 = Psalm 60:5-12.

The editors who did this have shown some skill as the fragments fit well, and make some sense as an affirmation of God’s help and power, while pointing out that He has withdrawn this help and needs to restore it.

It’s an ingenious way of (not) writing a new psalm.

I have however already translated the source psalms and commented upon them: readers can find these in my archives, emmock.com bible blog psalm 57/ 60.
