The foregoing psalm was an history of God's goodness to
Israel; this is an history of their rebellion: against him; probably
both were wrote by David at the same time, as we find the first verse
and the two last in that psalm, which he delivered to Asaph, 1 Chron. xvi, 35, &c. Herein we have the preface, ver. 1-5. The narrative
of all of the sins of Israel, aggravated by the great things God did for
them; their provocations at the Red-sea, ver. 6-12. Lusting, ver. 13-15.
Mutinying, ver. 16-18. Worshiping the golden calf, ver. 19-23.
Murmuring, ver. 24-27. Worshiping Baal- peor, ver. 28-31. Quarreling
with Moses, ver, 32, 33. Mixing with the nations of Canaan, ver. 34-39.
God rebuked them, yet saved them from ruin, ver. 40-46. The conclusion,
ver. 47, 48. It begins and ends with Hallelujah.
