1; David, praying for Solomon, shews the goodness and glory of
his kingdom, and in type of Christ's kingdom
18; He blesses God.
* A.M. 2989. B.C. 1015. (Title.) A Psalm.
This Psalm seems to have been composed by David in his last
days, when he had set his beloved son on the throne. "Then,"
says Calmet, "transported with joy and gratitude, he addressed
this Psalm to God, in which he prays Him to pour out His
blessings on the young king, and upon the people. He then,
wrapped up in a divine enthusiasm, ascends to a higher
subject; and sings the glory of the Messiah, and the
magnificence of his reign."
