Psalm 115:13 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

The Lord hath been mindful - He has never yet wholly abandoned us to our enemies.

He will bless the house of Israel - He will bless the people as a nation; he will bless the priesthood and Levites; he will bless all of them who fear him, great and small, in whatsoever station or circumstances found. There is a great deal of emphasis in this verse: several words are redoubled to make the subject the more affecting. I give a literal translation: -

Psalm 115:12 "The Lord has been mindful of us he will bless the house of Israel; she will bless the house of Aaron.

Psalm 115:13 He will bless them that fear Jehovah, the small with the great.

Psalm 115:14 Jehovah will add upon you, upon you and upon all your children.

Psalm 115:15 Blessed are ye of the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

Psalm 115:16 The heavens of heavens are the Lord's: but the earth he hath given to the sons of Adam."

Jehovah is absolute Master of the universe. He has made the heavens of heavens, and also the earth; and this he gives to the children of Adam. When he exiled him from paradise, he turned him out into the earth, and gave it to him and his sons for ever, that they might dress, till, and eat of its produce all their days.

The Warning
"And when they had sung a hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.

G. A. Chadwick—The Gospel of St. Mark

Impiety of Attributing a visible Form to God. --The Setting up of Idols a Defection from the True God.
1. God is opposed to idols, that all may know he is the only fit witness to himself. He expressly forbids any attempt to represent him by a bodily shape. 2. Reasons for this prohibition from Moses, Isaiah, and Paul. The complaint of a heathen. It should put the worshipers of idols to shame. 3. Consideration of an objection taken from various passages in Moses. The Cherubim and Seraphim show that images are not fit to represent divine mysteries. The Cherubim belonged to the tutelage of the Law. 4.
