Arthur Peake's Commentary on the Bible

Psalms 108

 

 

Verses 1-13

CVIII. A composition from parts of Psalms 57, 60. Thus Psalms 108:1-5 = Psalms 57:7-11; Psalms 57:6-11 = Psalms 60:5-12.

That Psalms 108 is a composition from two Pss. originally distinct appears further from the fact that Psalms 57, 60 are Elohistic (p. 366) and stand naturally among the other Elohistic Pss., while Psalms 108 is also Elohistic, but stands among other Pss., all Yahwistic. The compiler has combined two portions of neighbouring Elohistic Pss., leaving the mark of Elohistic revision. Owing to the union of fragments, thanks and prayer come in the reverse order.
