“Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises.”
King James Version (KJV)
47:4 Chuse - He will appoint and bestow upon us. Inheritance - The presence and worship, and blessing of God. This God had chosen for the Israelites and resolved to chuse or set apart for the Gentiles. Of Jacob - Of the people of Jacob or Israel, who are frequently called Jacob, for these did actually enjoy the presence of God in his sanctuary. Loved - Not for any peculiar worth in them, but for his free love to them, as he declareth, #Deut 7:7|,8.
47:5 God - This is meant literally of the ark: but mystically of Christ's ascension into heaven, as may be gathered by comparing this with #Eph 4:8|, where the like words uttered concerning the ark upon the same occasion, #Psal 68:18|, are directly applied to Christ's ascension.
47:7 The king - Not only ours, but of all the nations of the world. Sing - Not formally and carelessly, but seriously, considering the greatness of this king whom you praise, and what abundant cause you have to praise him.
47:8 The throne - Heaven is often called God's throne, whence God is said to behold and to rule all nations; of which general dominion of God, he here speaks. And Christ sits at his father's right - hand, for that purpose.
Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises vnto our King, sing praises.
