4. Of the sons of Asaph. Under the Spirit, who came upon him, he encouraged Jehoshaphat and the congregation of Judah in the house of the Lord, before the new court: "thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not ... dismayed by reason of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours but God's; tomorrow go ye down against them; behold they come up by the cliff of Ziz, and ye shall find them at the end of the brook (valley) before the wilderness of Jeruel, ye shall not need to fight ... stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord with you" (2 Chronicles 20:14; Psalms 83:3-7). This psalm was composed by one of the sons "of Asaph," which Jahaziel was; he probably was its author. It is called: a "song" (shir ), a thanksgiving by anticipation for the victory. It was sung by the Levite Kohathites and Korhites. So, according to their faith, "when they began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushments against Ammon, Moab, ... and they were smitten." The 47th Psalm was sung on the battlefield (2 Chronicles 20:26) after the victory, the 48th Psalm subsequently (2 Chronicles 20:28) in the temple.

5. Ezra 8:5.
