Psalms Chapter 108


psa 108:0


A Song or Psalm of David. 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.
