Psalm 117 Bible Commentary

Jamieson, Faussett, and Brown

(Read all of Psalm 117)

Ps 117:1, 2. This may be regarded as a doxology, suitable to be appended to any Psalm of similar character, and prophetical of the prevalence of God's grace in the world, in which aspect Paul quotes it (Ro 15:11; compare Ps 47:2; 66:8).

2. is great toward us--literally, "prevailed over" or "protected us."
