The main division of the Psalm contains twelve verses. These are divided, as is frequently the case, into three strophes, each consisting of four verses. Ver. 1 - 4 contains the representation of the misery - the land of the Lord has been taken possession of by the heathen, the temple desecrated, Jerusalem laid in ruins, the servants of God have been put to death, the people of God become the objects of contempt to their neighbours. The second and third strophes contain the prayer. The conclusion, ver. 13, containing the result of the whole, gives expression to confi dence.
The Psalm stands nearly related to the lxxiv. The situation is the same, and they come a good deal in contact as regards the expression.' Both Psalms refer to the Chaldean invasion. The Psalm before us proceeds on the supposition that the seventy fourth had been previously composed, and supplements it. In the seventy-fourth Psalm the destruction of the sanctuary is pre-eminently and almost exclusively brought forward; but in the seventy - ninth it is referred to very brie?y, for the purpose of indicating the passages which connect the two Psalms, and other subjects are put in the foreground. There is no good reason for the assertion which has been made, that the Psalm before us must have been composed previously to the seventy fourth, as the Temple is there spoken of as entirely destroyed.
