to all generations
79:13 to all generations. The prophet had seen forward to the destruction of Jerusalem (Psalm 79:1) and the suffering of Israel at the hand of other nations, but then also could see beyond that to the future kingdom age and restoration of Israel to God’s everlasting favor.
Psalm 80 (title) Shoshannim-Eduth. See note on Psalm 69 (Title). Shoshannim means “lilies,” but may also refer to a sort of trumpet shaped like a lily. Eduth means “witness.”
