Wesley's Notes for Psalms 113:7


113:6 Humbleth - Who is so high, that it is a wonderful condescention in him to take any notice of his heavenly host, and much more of sinful and miserable men upon earth.

113:8 Princes - As he did Joseph, David, and others. His people - Who in God's account are far more honourable than the princes of Heathen nations.
