Psalms 80:2

_ _ Before Ephraim, etc. — These tribes marched next the ark (Numbers 2:18-24). The name of Benjamin may be introduced merely in allusion to that fact, and not because that tribe was identified with Israel in the schism (1 Kings 12:16-21; compare also Numbers 10:24).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 80:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Before Ephraim — Here is an allusion to the ancient situation of the tabernacle in the wilderness, where these tribes were placed on the west — side of the tabernacle, in which the ark was, which consequently was before them.
