(9) Because thou hast done it.--Better, because thou workest, i.e., for thy works, but spoken in anticipation of future manifestations.

I will wait on thy name. . . .--Better, I will wait for thy glory; "name," here, after the mention of God's works in the last clause, being evidently, as so often, synonymous with "fame" and "reputation."

For it is good before thy saints.--This may mean that such a trustful expectation in the presence of the saints is good, or that it is pleasant in the eyes of the saints thus to wait, or we may take "name" as the subject.

The mention of the "saints" (chasidim) is by some supposed to indicate the Asmonean period as that of the composition of the Psalm.

Verse 9. - I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done it. So Dr. Kay, who explains the passage as meaning, "because thou hast worked out this deliverance.' The tense is "the preterite of pro. phetic certainty" (comp. Psalm 54:7). And I will wait on thy Name; for it is good before thy saints; rather, I will wait on thy Name in the presence of thy saints, because it is good; or perhaps, if we adopt Hupfeld's emendation (אֲחַוֶּה for אֲקַוֶּה), I will precision thy Name before thy saints that it is good (so Cheyne).
