Psalm 115:7 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

It has to do not so much with the honour of Israel, which is not worthy of the honour (Ezekiel 36:22.) and has to recognise in its reproach a well-merited chastisement, as with the honour of Him who cannot suffer the reproaching of His holy name to continue long. He willeth that His name should be sanctified. In the consciousness of his oneness with this will, the poet bases his petition, in so far as it is at the same time a petition on behalf of Israel, upon God's cha'ris and alee'theia as upon two columns. The second על, according to an express note of the Masora, has no Waw before it, although the lxx and Targum insert one. The thought in Psalm 115:2 is moulded after Psalm 79:10, or after Joel 2:17, cf. Psalm 42:4; Micah 7:10. איּה־נא is the same style as נגדּה־נּא in Psalm 116:18, cf. in the older language אל־נא, אם־נא, and the like.
