    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 78:22

    They believed not in God - After all the miracles they had seen, they were not convinced that there was a Supreme Being! and, consequently, they did not trust in his salvation - did not expect the glorious rest which he had promised them. Their descendants in the present day are precisely in this state. Multitudes of them disbelieve the Divine origin of their law, and have given up all hopes of a Messiah.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 78:22

    Because they believed not in God - They did not believe in his power, or in his promises.

    And trusted not in his salvation - In his power and his willingness to save. They had had abundant evidence of that power, but they still doubted his ability to save them, notwithstanding all that he had done for them.

    Wesley's Notes on Psalms 78:22

    78:22 Trusted not - That he both could, and would save them from the famine which they feared.
