Psalms 105:10

 

 

Then He confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, To Israel as an everlasting covenant,

Albert Barnes' Notes on the Whole Bible

And confirmed the same unto Jacob - literally, “caused it to stand;” that is, he made it fast or secure. He renewed it, commanding the same things; making the same promises; and pledging himself for its fulfillment in the same manner. Genesis 28:10-15.

For a law - For an established or settled ordinance, for a rule by which future things were to be regulated: that is, they would occur according to that promise, and be conformed to it. It was, as it were, a rule which God prescribed for himself in regard to his own future conduct.

And to Israel … - Another name for Jacob, Genesis 32:28.

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law,.... The son of Isaac, and the grandson of Abraham, to whom it was renewed and confirmed, Genesis 28:13. It is true of his posterity that go by his name, and even of all the spiritual Israel of God, to whom this covenant is confirmed and made sure: or "caused to stand"F2יעמידה "stare fecit", Vatablus. , as the word is; by the faithfulness of God by his oath annexed to his word, and by the death of his Son: when this is said to be "for a law", the meaning is, not as if this covenant had the nature of a law, as the covenant of works had; indeed one of the articles of it is, that the law of God should be put into the inward part, and written on the heart; but this refers here not to men, but to God; and the sense is, that this covenant has the force of a law with respect to God, who of his condescending grace and goodness has hereby laid himself under obligation to do such and such things; which is marvellous grace indeed.

And to Israel for an everlasting covenant: for being remembered, commanded, repeated, and confirmed by the Lord, it can never be broken; and being well ordered, remains sure, and is as immovable as rocks and mountains, and more so: as it was made with Christ from everlasting, it will continue to be made good to his people to everlasting; and is a just reason for praise; it being the basis of faith and hope; the ground of joy, peace, and comfort here, and of eternal happiness hereafter.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

Psalms 105:10 And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, [and] to Israel [for] an everlasting covenant:

Ver. 10. And confirmed the same, &c.] So God sealeth and sweareth to us again and again, in every sacrament, that all doubts of his love may be taken away, and our hearts lifted up (as Jehoshaphat’s, 2 Chronicles 17:6) in the way of the Lord.

Matthew Poole's English Annotations on the Holy Bible

For a law; either that it might be as firm and irrevocable, as a law; or that it might have the use and force of a law towards God, because God did hereby put himself under an obligation of making it good in regard of his own truth and righteousness.

Whedon's Commentary on the Bible

10. For a law—The covenant of Abraham was the fundamental law, or charter, of the Hebrew Church and commonwealth, as it is of the gospel. See Luke 1:68-75.

Everlasting covenant—Literally so, as the nature of the subject requires us to understand it, for it contained the germ of gospel promise and doctrine. Galatians 3:8; Romans 4:13

George Haydock's Catholic Bible Commentary

Redeemed. What price was given? This is a figure of baptism, in which the fruits of Christ's blood are applied to our souls. All sins are there destroyed, as the Egyptians were in the Sea. (St. Augustine, Ser. xlii. de Temp.) (Worthington)
