136:1 O give thanks unto the LORD; for [he is] good: for his a mercy [endureth] for ever.

    (a) By this repetition he shows that the least of God's benefits bind us to thanksgiving: but chiefly his mercy, which is principally declared towards his Church.
136:6 To him that stretched out the earth above the waters: for his b mercy [endureth] for ever.
    (b) This was a common kind of thanksgiving, which the whole people used, when they had received any benefit from God, as in (2Ch 7:6,20:21), meaning that God was not only merciful to their fathers, but also continued the same to their posterity.
136:11 And c brought out Israel from among them: for his mercy [endureth] for ever:
    (c) God's merciful providence toward man appears in all his creatures, but chiefly in that he delivered his Church from the clutches of their enemies.
136:12 With a strong hand, and with a d stretched out arm: for his mercy [endureth] for ever.
    (d) In doing such a work as was never done before, nor that any other could do.
136:16 To him which led his people through the e wilderness: for his mercy [endureth] for ever.
    (e) Where for the space of forty years he showed infinite and most strange wonders.
136:18 And slew f famous kings: for his mercy [endureth] for ever:
    (f) Declaring by it that no power or authority was so dear to him as the love of his Church.

136:23 Who remembered us in our g low estate: for his mercy [endureth] for ever:

    (g) In our greatest affliction and slavery when we looked for nothing less than to have had any help.
136:25 Who giveth food to all h flesh: for his mercy [endureth] for ever.
    (h) Seeing that God provides even for the beasts much more has he care over his.
136:26 i O give thanks unto the God of heaven: for his mercy [endureth] for ever.
    (i) Seeing that all ages have had most plain testimonies of God's benefits.
