PSALM 66 BY ALEXADER MACLAREPSALM LXVII Shout joyfully to God, all the earth,S Harp [unto] the glory of His name,Render glory [to Him by] His praise.3 Say to God, How dread are Thy works !For the greatness of Thy strength shall Thy enemies feign[submission] to Thee.4 All tht earth shall bow down to Thee, and harp to Thee,The shall harp [to] Thy name. Selah.5 C*roe, and behold the deeds of God ;T Ie is dread in His doing towards the sons of mea.< He turned the sea to dry land,They went through the river on foot,There let us rejoice in Him.T He rules by His might for ever;His eyes watch the nations,The rebellious — let them not exalt themselves. Selah.8 Bless our God, ye peoples,And let the voice of His praise be heard !9 Who has set our soul in life,And has not let our foot slip.10 For Thou hast proved us, O God,Thou hast refined us, as silver is refined.
1 1 Thou hast brought us into the fortress-dungeon,Thou hast laid a heavy burden on our loins.13 Thou hast caused men to ride over our head,We have come into the fire and into the water,But Thou broughtest us out into abundance.13 I will go into Thy house with burnt offering^I will render to Thee my vows,(4 Which my lips uttered,And my mouth spoke, in my straits.*55a58 t&M PSALMS15 Burnt offerings of fatlings will I offer to Thee,With the savour of rams,I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah,16 Come, hearken, and I will recount, all ye that fear God,What He has done for my soul.17 To Him did I cry with my mouth,And a song extolling [Him] was [already] under my tongue.18 If I had intended iniquity in my heart,The Lord would not hear :19 But surely God has heard,He has attended to the voice of my prayer.
20 Blessed be God,Who has not turned away my prayer, nor His loving-kindnessfrom me.THE most striking feature of this psalm is thetransition from the plural "we" and "our," inw. 1-12, to the singular "I" and "my," in vv. 13-20.Ewald supposes that two independent psalms havebeen united, but ver. 12 is as abrupt for an ending asver. 13 is for a beginning ; and the "Come, hear," of ver. 16 echoes the "Come, and see," of ver. 5. It ispossible that " the ' I ' of the second part is identical withthe ' we ' of the first ; in other words, that the personifiedcommunity speaks here " (Baethgen) ; but the supposi-tion that the psalm was meant for public worship, andis composed of a choral and a solo part, accounts forthe change of number. Such expressions as "mysoul " and " my heart " favour the individual reference.Of course, the deliverance magnified by the singlevoice is the same as that celebrated by the loud acclaimof many tongues ; but there is a different note in thepraise of the former — there is a tone of inwardness init, befitting individual appropriation of general blessings.To this highest point, that of the action of the singlesoul in taking the deliverances of the community forIwfcJ TttS PSALMS »57its very own, and pouring out its own praise, thepsalm steadily climbs. It begins with the widest out-look over "all the earth," summoned to ring forth joyous praise. It ends focussed to one burning point,in a heart fired by the thought that God "has notturned away his loving-kindness from me." So welearn how each single soul has to claim its several partin world-Wide blessings, as each flower-calyx absorbs
