This psalm is generally thought to have been composed by
David, upon bringing the ark of God from the house of Obed- edom, into
the tabernacle which David had built for it, 2 Sam. vi, 12, 17. Wherein he hath a farther prospect to the temple, which he
earnestly desired and intended to build. Moreover because the
tabernacle, and temple, and ark, were types of Christ, and of his church
and of heaven. David extended his thoughts to them also, or at least the
Holy Ghost designed to comprehend them under these typical expressions.
He shews God's sovereignty over the world, ver. 1, 2. Who shall receive
his blessing, ver. 3-6. An exhortation to receive Christ, ver. 7-10. A
psalm of David.
