Ps 117:1, 2. This may be regarded as a doxology,
suitable to be appended to any Psalm of similar character, and
prophetical of the prevalence of God's grace in the world, in which
aspect Paul quotes it (Ro 15:11;
compare Ps 47:2; 66:8).
2. is great toward us—literally,
"prevailed over" or "protected us."
