Ps 135:2
135:2 Ye that {a} stand in the house of the LORD, in the {b}
      courts of the house of our God,

      (a) You Levites who are in his sanctuary.
      (b) Meaning, the people: for the people and Levites had
          their courts, which were separate places of the

Ps 135:4
135:4 For the LORD hath {c} chosen Jacob unto himself, [and]
      Israel for his peculiar treasure.

      (c) That is, has freely loved the posterity of Abraham.

Ps 135:6
135:6 Whatsoever the LORD pleased, [that] {d} did he in heaven,
      and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places.

      (d) He joined God's power with his will, to the intent
          that we should not separate them and by this he wills
          God's people to depend on his power which he confirms
          by examples.

Ps 135:12
135:12 And {e} gave their land [for] an heritage, an heritage
       unto Israel his people.

       (e) He shows what fruit the godly conceive of God's
           power, by which they see how he destroys his enemies,
           and delivers his people.

Ps 135:14
135:14 For the LORD will {f} judge his people, and he will
       repent himself concerning his servants.

       (f) That is, govern and defend his people.

Ps 135:15
135:15 The {g} idols of the heathen [are] silver and gold, the
       work of men's hands.

       (g) By showing the punishment God appoints for the
           heathen idolaters, he warns his people to beware of
           the same offences, seeing that idols have neither
           power nor life, and that their deliverance came not
           by idols, but by the mighty power of God, see
           @Ps 115:4-14.
