(1) Before the gods.--Undoubtedly, as in Psalm 82:1 : "before the great" or "mighty." (Comp. Psalm 119:46, "before kings.")

Sing praise.--Rather, play.

Verse 1. - I will praise thee with my whole heart (comp. Psalm 9:1; Psalm 111:1). Before the gods will I sing praise unto thee. Some suppose the expression, "before the gods," to mean "before the great ones of the earth," and quote Psalm 119:46 as parallel. Others think that the imaginary vain gods of the heathen are intended.
