_ _ The advantages afforded, as in war by the strength of the horse or the agility of man, do not incline God to favor any; but those who fear and, of course, trust Him, will obtain His approbation and aid.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 147:1-11.

Psalms 147:10

He delighteth not in the (h) strength of the horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man.
