To the chief Musician. A Psalm or Song of DAVID.
Perhaps this Psalm was composed on the same occasion as the 24th and 47th, when David brought up the ark of God to that tabernacle, which he had pitched for it in Zion; 2 Sam. vi. We have in it, (1) Fervent supplications that God would scatter and defeat the projects of his enemies ; ver. 1, 2. (2) High praises to him for his infinite greatness and grace ; his righteous relieving of the afflicted and oppressed; his directing of Israel in the Arabian desert; his manifesting of his glory at Sinai; his comfortable providing for his people in the wilderness, and in Canaan, ver. 3—10. And for the easy conquest of their Canaanitish enemies; his fixing his temple on mount Zion ; for the ascension of Christ to glory, to receive gifts for men; and for the spread of the gospel among Jews and Gentiles, by means of the apostles; while the obstinate Jews are severely punished ; ver. 11-32. and, in fine, for his superior dominion ; his awful majesty ; his mighty power; for the glory of his sanctuary, and the grâce he bestows upon his people; ver. 33–35.
While I sing, let me behold, let me admire, what God is, and hath done for, and to my soul, and to the church of God, of which I am a member. Let me behold what God hath done, in instances unnumbered, in prosecution of the covenant he made with his eternal Son

let all his en’mies be: And let all those that do him hate
before his presence flee. 2 As smoke is driv’n, so drive thou them;
as fire melts wax away,
Before God's face let wicked men
so perish and decay. 3 But let the righteous be glad,
let them before God's sight Be very joyful ; yea, let them
rejoice with all their might. 4 To God sing, to his name sing praise:
extol him with your voice, That rides on heav'n by his name JAH,
before his face rejoice. 5 Because the Lord a father is
unto the fatherless : God is the widow's judge within
his place of holiness.
