This psalm was perhaps penned by David, when he took the strong hold of Zion from the Jebusites; and represents, (1.) Abundant joys to the people of God, in his relation to, delight in, and kindness towards them, ver. 1-5. (2.) Abundance of terror to the proudest of their enemies, in their victory and power over them, ver. 6-9.
While I sing, let mine eyes be fixed on Jesus Christ, going forth in his chariots of salvation, subduing his enemies to himself, by the gospel rod of his strength, in the Apostolic and Millennial periods, Rev. 20:2; and in the chariots of vengeance, destroying his incorrigible opposers, by the iron rod of his wrath, and treading them under the feet of his saints.
