Albert Barnes' Notes on the Whole Bible

The Lord shall reign for ever - See the notes at Psalm 10:16: “The Lord is King forever and ever” Compare Exodus 15:18.

Even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations - As long as the world shall endure. There shall be no change of dynasty as there is in human governments; but the same King shall reign from age to age.

Praise ye the Lord - Hallelu-jah. The psalm closes as it commences. It is a call on all persons to unite in the praise of Yahweh.

Psalms 146:10

The Lord shall reign for ever.

The eternal reign of Zion’s King

I. The King to be proclaimed--Jehovah, the Triune God.

1. The Three Persons of the Deity are included and pointed out as the joint-covenanters for Zion’s salvation.

2. He is the avenger of Zion, and the judge of their cause.

3. He is endeared to Zion by His signify.

4. The union is eternal. I want a Christianity that not only brings me to heaven at last, but that brings heaven down to my soul now, that I may gain the foretaste of eternal bliss even in a world of sorrows. Blessed be God, I know something about it.

II. The interests of His kingdom.

1. The safety of all His subjects, because they are His own peculiar care.

2. The undivided allegiance of His subjects.

3. The statutes and laws of His kingdom are inimitable and immutable.

III. Its never-ending duration. The King eternal, immortal, hatch spoiled death, and taken away his sting; and He has removed its terrors, and for ever put away the second death, so that none of His subjects can by any possibility enter upon it; for on such the second death hath no power. They are blessed and holy, having been made partakers of the first resurrection from the death of sin to a life of righteousness. And because our King is immortal, and dieth no more, and lives for ever--cannot grow old--without beginning of days, or end of years, so are all His subjects; for I hear Him thus proclaim for their encouragement, “Because I live, ye shall live also.”

IV. Hallelujah. Oh for more exalted strains! Oh for stronger language! Oh for a fuller vocabulary, and boundless ideas to be thrown forth as with a cataract, and without reserve, to glorify, and honour, and exalt the precious name of Jesus; for all the voices in heaven are thus employed. And how should this encourage the subjects of His grace on earth! (J. Irons.)

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

The Lord shall reign for ever,.... The Messiah, who is King of kings and Lord of lords; and in this he is superior to, them, they reign but for a while, but he for evermore; the throne of majesty and glory on which he sits is for ever and ever; his kingdom is an everlasting kingdom; of his government, and the peace of it, there will be no end; he is King of saints now, and reigns in their hearts, and in his churches, and in the world; and he will reign with his people, and they with him, a thousand years on earth; and then they will reign together to all eternity; see Psalm 14:6. Both Jarchi and Kimchi refer this to the Messiah and his kingdom; the note of the former is,

"he shall confirm his kingdom in the redemption or salvation of his children;'

and of the latter,

"it shall be said he is King over all, after he has executed judgment on the wicked in the valley of Jehoshaphat;'

even thy God, O Zion, unto, all generations; he who is Zion's God is Zion's King, head over all things to the church; and this is her joy and comfort in every age, that her God and her King reigns, and will reign for evermore; and especially in a glorious manner in the latter day; see Isaiah 52:7; and as all this is a solid ground and foundation of truth in the Lord, and serves to encourage saints to make him their help and hope; and shows how happy they are that have him as such; so it is matter of praise and thanksgiving: hence it follows,

praise ye the Lord; or "hallelujah"; and so the psalm ends as it began.

Calvin's Commentary on the Bible

10.Jehovah shall reign, etc. He directs his discourse to the Church, that he may more effectually persuade all God’s people of their really finding him to be such as he had just described. When he says that God is king for ever, we are to remember at the same time the purpose for which he reigns — taking our definition of it from the preceding ascription’s. It follows that, whether living or dying, we shall be safe under the keeping of a king who reigns expressly for our salvation. Had he said no more than that Jehovah reigned for ever, we would have been ready to object the distance between us and his inconceivable greatness. He states, therefore, in express terms, his being bound by sacred covenant to his chosen people.

Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary

REFLECTIONS

HAIL! thou glorious King of Zion, Jesus, before whom every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess that thou art, universal Lord, to the glory of God the Father! I would begin every hymn, and close every prayer with Hallelujah. Surely, Lord, every redeemed soul upon earth, as well as those in heaven, thus taught by thee may join the song, for thou art worthy to receive all glory and honour, for thou wast slain and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood. I behold, Lord, in princes and everything around, the dying perishing circumstances of all the earth. The children of men must die; mountains shall depart; hills be removed; but Jesus liveth. He that is I AM, amidst all revolutions is I AM still. Precious thought! what a foundation is here for thee, my soul! It is He that hath opened thy blind eyes. It is He that hath loosed thee, out of prison. He that hath been thy help, now is, and ever will be thy Redeemer, thy God, and the lifter up of thine head. Here rest then, and shout Hallelujah! This God is thy God forever and ever: He will be thy guide unto death.

Whedon's Commentary on the Bible

10. The Lord shall reign for ever—Israel had seen kings and dynasties come and go, while Jehovah, the God of their fathers, was the same, and his years and power did not fail. He is now anew recognised as the God of this mountain, Mount Zion, which, therefore, cannot be removed, and he that trusteth in him shall, like Zion, abide for ever.

Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable

The psalmist concluded by affirming that Israel"s God will reign as long as human life endures. This was his conclusion in view of what he had said about God"s abilities earlier in this psalm. Consequently people should praise the Lord.

Whereas human life depends on man"s need to trust his fellow Prayer of Manasseh , we should avoid the temptation to trust in human beings entirely or even primarily. Yahweh is the only Person who is worthy of our absolute trust. Reflection on the differences between people and God makes this clear. [Note: See R. B. Allen, And I ..., pp214-24 , 225-38.]

Joseph Benson's Commentary of the Old and New Testaments

Psalms 146:10. The Lord shall reign for ever — His kingdom shall continue throughout all the revolutions of time, and to the remotest ages of eternity; even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations — Christ is set as King on the holy hill of Zion, and his kingdom shall continue in a glory that shall know no period. It cannot be destroyed by an invader: it shall not be left to a successor; either to a succeeding monarch, or to a succeeding monarchy, but shall stand for ever. It is matter of unspeakable comfort that the Lord reigns, as Zion’s God, and as Zion’s King, that the Messiah is head over all things to the church, and will be so while the world stands.

The Lord shall reign forever, (even) thy God, O Zion, unto all generations - from Exodus 15:18; Revelation 11:15. In contrast to the transitory kingdoms of the world. They who have such an everlasting kingdom awaiting them in the end, can afford to bear trials patiently, not yielding to despair on the way.
