    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 108:4

    For thy mercy ... - This is taken from Psalm 57:10. The only change is in the expression "above the heavens," instead of "unto the heavens." The sense is essentially the same. The particular idea here, if it differs at all from the expression in Psalm 57:1-11, is, that the mercy of God seems to "descend" from heaven upon man, or "comes down" from on high.
