On Psalm 105:1-7

“This is one great difference between the praise which men render to their fellow-men and that which they seek to render to God. In our ascriptions of praise to men, however relatively worthy, we are frequently in danger of stepping over the bounds of truth and of falling into flattery and adulation, but never so in our offering of praise to the all-glorious Jehovah, “Who is exalted above all blessings and praise” which human lips can render to Him.  The very utmost, therefore, to which we can rise in our worship and thanksgiving to Him are but feeble and inadequate confessions, which fall short by ten thousand degrees of the actual glories of His character, and the Divine perfection of all His ways.”

David Baron, Israel and the Plan of God, p. 130-131.
