Thy wondrous works.--Rather, as in Psalm 105:27 (see Note; comp. Psalm 65:3), the details of thy wonders. In psalms like 105, 106, &c, is the detailed fulfilment of this purpose.

Verse 5. - I will speak of the glorious honor of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works (comp. Psalm 26:7; Psalm 71:17). It was the duty of every faithful Israelite to set forth God's majesty, and to "declare his works with rejoicing" (Psalm 117:2). David proclaims himself ready to perform this duty. Then, he thinks, others will join in.
