Wesley's Notes on the Bible

29:18 Of Abraham, and c. - A God in covenant with them, and with us for their sakes.

The Exile --Continued.
We have one psalm which the title connects with the beginning of David's stay at Adullam,--the thirty-fourth. The supposition that it dates from that period throws great force into many parts of it, and gives a unity to what is else apparently fragmentary and disconnected.
