Vv. 10-12. Dost thou show wonders among the dead, or shall the dead rise up again and praise thee? &c.
I think the Bible version might with advantage be substituted for this, which in some parts is scarcely intelligible.
V. 6.--the waters stand in the hills.
No; STOOD ABOVE THE MOUNTAINS. The reference is to the Deluge.
V. 3.--LET THE HEART OF THEM REJOICE THAT SEEK THE LORD.

V. 2.--The LORD SHALL SEND THE ROD OF THY POWER OUT OF SION; (saying) RULE, &c.
V. 3. Understand--"Thy people shall offer themselves willingly in the day of conflict in holy clothing, in their best array, in their best arms and accoutrements. As the dew from the womb of the morning, in number and brightness like dew-drops, so shall be thy youth, or the youth of thee, the young volunteer warriors."
