Remember

Genesis 4:4
And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering:

Isaiah 60:7
All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together unto thee, the rams of Nebaioth shall minister unto thee: they shall come up with acceptance on mine altar, and I will glorify the house of my glory.

Ephesians 5:2
And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

accept [heb.

2 Samuel 5:7
Nevertheless David took the strong hold of Zion: the same is the city of David.

2 Samuel 6:17
And they brought in the ark of the LORD, and set it in his place, in the midst of the tabernacle that David had pitched for it: and David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the LORD.

Isaiah 12:6
Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.









(3) All thy offerings.--The king is sacrificing, according to custom, before battle (1Samuel 13:9), the burnt offering (olah, from root to "go up," i.e., of the smoke) and the bloodless offering (minchah, from root "to portion out") of fine flour. (See Leviticus 2:1). Since the word rendered in our version memorial (Leviticus 24:7), which is a derivative of the verb here rendered "remember," has been proved by eminent scholars to signify "incense," we may believe the psalmist meant--

"Accept the incense of all thy minchah,

And the fat of thy olah"

Indeed Mr. Burgess would render "smell" and "relish."

Accept.--Literally, make fat (Psalm 23:5, "anointest") i.e., regard or receive as a fat or a worthy offering. The objection to the alternative rendering, "turn to ashes," i.e., "consume," (Leviticus 9:24; 1Kings 18:38), is that the Hebrew word never elsewhere has that sense, but only that of "cleansing from ashes." . . .

Verse 3. - Remember all thy offerings. (On David's offerings, see 2 Samuel 6:13, 17; 2 Samuel 24:25; 1 Chronicles 15:26; 1 Chronicles 16:1; 1 Chronicles 21:28; 1 Chronicles 29:21.) It is not to be supposed, however, that David ever sacrificed victims with his own hand, or without the intervention of a priest. And accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah. It is a reasonable conjecture that the "Selah" here marks a "pause," during which special sacrifices were offered, with a view of entreating God's favour and protection in the coming war (Hengstenberg).
