Swift messengers will come out of Egypt], the most probable rendering of a difficult passage after ancient Vrss. “ Princes” of EV®. cannot be sustained even by the erroneous form of H due to dittography. JPSV., “Hashmanim” leaves the word untranslated and without meaning. - As for Cush], Biblical name of Ethiopia, — his hands will run out to God, in the gesture of supplication. This is a prediction of the conversion of Egypt and Ethiopia in accordance with Is. 1919 84. 438 45' 60%. Zp. 30. - 33–36. A universal summons to praise. — 33. Ye kingdoms of earth], all of them, sing to God], take part in the public worship in the temple in Jerusalem, cf. 96789. 972 984 99184 — 34. Lift up to Him that rideth upon the ancient heavens], based on v." and Dt. 33. A later glossator prefixes as an interpretation : make melody to Adonay; and still later the original verb is interpreted as Selah. A glossator emphasizes the theophanic ride of Yahweh in the heavens by the usual reference to the thunder storm : Lo! He uttereth with His voice]. — 35. The summons to praise continues : with a strong voice ascribe strength to God], with loud praise of vocal and instrumental music; and probably also thinking of the blowing of horns, with blasts of the sacred trumpets — Whose majesty is over Israel, and whose strength is in the skies]. God in His theophanic ride is conceived as majestic and strong in the skies; but as Dt. 3326 it is all for Israel, in Israel's behalf, that the theophanic ride has been made.-36. Awe-inspiring in His sanctuary], as ancient Vrss. The change to the second person in H, followed by EV'., is improbable. The earthly sanctuary is here in antith. with the heavenly. — the God of Israel], emphasis upon the peculiar relation between God and His people, - Giver of strength and great might to the people]. The strength that He exhibits in His theophanic ride in the heaven is bestowed upon His people on earth. The Ps. concludes in its present form with the liturgical phrase : Blessed be God, cf. v. 20. 27,

If the snow is a simile of bones which have been stripped by birds of prey, there is no need of thinking of a snow mountain.
