Psalm 138:2 – Praise Scripture With Commentary

I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name. – Psalm 138:2

Pulpit Commentary

Verse 2.I will worship toward thy holy temple. The term “temple” here must designate the tabernacle (comp. Psalm 5:8). And praise thy Name for thy loving-kindness and for thy truth. “Mercy” and “truth” are God’s two highest attributes (Exodus 34:6). They were especially shown to Israel in God’s promises and his fidelity to them. For thou hast magnified thy Word above all thy Name. Some would amend the text, and read אמתך, “thy truth,” for, אמרתך “thy Word.” But if we keep the text, and understand אמרתך as “thy promises,” the sense will not be very different. God has magnified his promise, and his faithfulness to it, above all his other revealed attributes.
