Psalms 136:17

 

 

To Him who smote great kings, For His lovingkindness is everlasting,

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

To him which smote great kings,.... Either the thirty one kings in the land of Canaan; or those who are after particularly mentioned; which seems best, since the kings of Canaan were petty kings, when these were greater ones;

for his mercy endureth for ever; the smiting of those kings were in mercy to Israel; both to preserve them from falling into their hands, and that they might possess their countries, as is later declared.

Psalms 136:17 To him which smote great kings: for his mercy [endureth] for ever:

Ver. 17. To him which smote great kings] Great, as those times accounted them, when every small city almost had their king; Canaan had thirty and more of them. Great also in regard of their stature and strength; for they were of the giant’s race, Deuteronomy 3:11-13, Amos 2:1
