Psalms 149:2

Let Israel rejoice in him that (b) made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their (c) King.

(b) In that they were preferred before all other nations, it was a new creation, and therefore (Psalms 95:7) they were called the sheep of God's hands.

(c) For God as he is the creator of the soul and body, so will he that both two serve him, and that his people be continually subject to him, as to their most lawful king.
