    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 78:26

    He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven - See Numbers 11:31. In the history, the quarter from which the wind came is not mentioned, except as it might be indicated by the statement that the "quails were brought from the sea;" - that is, evidently, the Red Sea. This wind would have come from the southeast. The phrase "in the heaven" means in the air, or from above.

    And by his power ... - By his direct agency. It was a wind which he caused to blow for the purpose; a miracle.
