(1) Judah . . . Israel.--A comparison with Psalm 114:1-2, leads to the conclusion that these names are introduced here in this order, simply for the rhythm. (Comp. "Salem" and "Sion" in the next verse, and notice that the four names offer an instance of introversion, the more restricted terms, Judah, Sion, occupying the first and last clauses, the more general Israel, Salem, the middle ones.)

Verse 1. - In Judah is God known (comp. Psalm 9:16; Psalm 48:3). By "known" is meant "freshly made known," "revealed," as it were, "anew" by the recent wonderful deliverance. His Name is great in Israel; i.e. greatly honourcd and regarded, on account of what has happened.
