Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 105:22

_ _ To bind — Not literally bind; but exercise over them absolute control, as the parallel in the second clause shows; also Genesis 41:40, Genesis 41:44, in which not literal fettering, but commanding obedience, is spoken of. It refers to Psalms 105:18. The soul that was once bound itself now binds others, even princes. The same moral binding is assigned to the saints (Psalms 149:8).

_ _ teach ... senators wisdom — the ground of his exaltation by Pharaoh was his wisdom (Genesis 41:39); namely, in state policy, and ordering well a kingdom.
