Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Psalms 136:6

To him that stretched out the earth above the waters: for his (b) mercy [endureth] for ever.

(b) This was a common kind of thanksgiving, which the whole people used, when they had received any benefit from God, as in (2 Chronicles 7:6, 2 Chronicles 20:21), meaning that God was not only merciful to their fathers, but also continued the same to their posterity.
