or, Achish.This is the second of the alphabetical Psalms (the first being Ps 25:); each verse beginning consecutively with a letter of the Hebrew alphabet.
The verse, however, which begins with [\^w\^, vâv,] {wav,} and which should come in between the fifth and sixth, is totally wanting; but as the 22nd, which now begins with [\^p\^, pê,] {pay, podeh,} "redeemeth," is entirely out of the series, it is not improbable that it was originally written {oophodeh,} "and redeemeth" and occupied that situation, in which connection it reads admirably.
