Psalms 108:8

 

 

"Gilead is Mine, Manasseh is Mine; Ephraim also is the helmet of My head; Judah is My scepter.

Albert Barnes' Notes on the Whole Bible

Gilead is mine … - This is taken from Psalm 60:7. The only change is the omission of the word and before “Manasseh.”

George Haydock's Catholic Bible Commentary

PSALM CVIII. (DEUS LAUDEM MEAM.)

David, in the person of Christ, prayeth against his persecutors; more especially the traitor Judas; foretelling and approving his just punishment for his obstinacy in sin and final impenitence.

Bishopric. Greek: Episkopen, "inspection or pre-eminence" of any kind. Judas lost his spiritual office, and the Jews all dominion in a very short time. St. Peter quotes this passage, [Acts i. 20.] and only the Socinians will assert that he does not adhere to the literal sense. (Berthier) --- The apostleship (Worthington) was given to St. Matthias. (Calmet) --- The priesthood of Aaron was forced to give place to that of Melchisedech. (Menochius)
