Psalm 113:7 Parallel
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The call, not limited by any addition as in Psalm 134:1, or eve, after the manner of Psalm 103:20., extended over the earth, is given to the whole of the true Israel that corresponds to its election by grace and is faithful to its mission; and its designation by "servants of Jahve" (Psalm 69:37, cf. Psalm 34:23), or even "servant of Jahve" (Psalm 136:22), has come into vogue more especially through the second part of Isaiah. This Israel is called upon to praise Jahve; for the praise and celebration of His Name, i.e., of His nature, which is disclosed by means of its manifestation, is a principal element, yea, the proper ground and aim, of the service, and shall finally become that which fills all time and all space. מהלּל laudatum (est), is equivalent to ἀινετόν, laudabile (lxx, Vulgate), and this does not differ greatly from laudetur. The predictive interpretation laudabitur is opposed to the context (cf. moreover Kφhler on Malachi 1:11).
