Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake.Psalm 115
Who Their God is?
1. Israel’s God (Psalm 115:1-3)
2. In Contrast with Idols (Psalm 115:4-8)
3. O Israel Trust in the Lord (Psalm 115:9-18)
Here Israel acknowledges her Saviour-Lord, unto Him alone is glory due. The nations had asked, Where is now their God? (Psalm 43:3; Psalm 79:10) The Contrast between the God of Israel and the dumb idols of the nations follows. But Israel’s God, the Lord, who has delivered them, is the living God and therefore the exhortation to trust Him who blesseth His people. Israel’s resolve closes this Psalm: “But we will praise the LORD, from this time forth forevermore. Hallelujah.”
