- Ps 110NIVSB=CSSB until "... his son Solomon," going on with "that he called him 'my Lord' (v. 1) in view of his new status, which placed him above the aged David, and that in so doing he spoke a word that had far larger meaning than he knew. This would seem to be in more accord with what we know of David from Samuel, Kings and Chronicles. For this psalm's setting in the Psalter see introduction to Ps 101-110. The psalm falls into two precisely balanced halves (vv. 1-3, 4-7) Each of the two brief oracles (vv. 1, 4) is followed by thematically and structurally similar elaboration: as v. 4 is to v. 1, so v. 5 is to v. 2 and vv. 6-7 are to v. 3 (a poetic couplet)."
- Ps 118NIVSB=CSSB until "... Last Supper (see Mt 26:30)." but goes on with "Following a liturgical call to praise (vv. 1–4), the king offers a song of thanksgiving for deliverance and victory in battle (vv. 5–21). A three-verse stanza (vv. 5-7) summarizing the main theme is followed by two seven-verse composite stanzas (vv. 8-14, 15-21) of elaboration, each closing with the refrain: 'has/have become my salvation.' In vv. 22–27 the people rejoice over what the Lord has done. Thereafter, the king speaks his final word of praise (v. 28), and a liturgical conclusion (v. 29) repeats the opening call to praise, thus framing the whole. In the two seven-verse stanzas (vv. 8-14, 15-21) the divine name Yahweh (or its shortened foorm, Yah) occurs seven times. In the six-verse stanza (vv. 22-27) it occurs seven times, and in the remaining verses (1-7, 28-29) it occurs seven times."
- Ps 118 capstoneNIVSB=CSSB but has "...Israel. Jesus applied this verse (and v.23) to himself..." instead of "...Israel. Jesus brings out this verse's prophetic intent by applying it (and v.23) to himself..."Psalm 118:22Concordia Self-Study Bible118:22 The stone the builders rejected. Most likely a reference to the king (whose deliverance and victory are being celebrated), who had been looked on with disdain by the kings invading his realm—the builders of worldly empires. Others suppose that the stone refers to Israel, a nation held in contempt by the world powers. capstone.† Lit. “head of the corner”—either a capstone over a door (a large stone used as a lintel), or a large stone used to anchor and align the corner of a wall, or the
