Ps 136 :

The hymn praises Israel's God (“the God of gods,” 2), who has created the world in which Israel lives. The refrain occurring after every line suggests that a speaker and chorus sang the psalm in antiphonal fashion. A single act of God is described in 4–25: God arranges the heavens and the earth as the environment for human community, and then creates the community by freeing them and giving them land. In the final section (23–25) God, who created the people and gave them land, continues to protect and nurture them.

136, 22 :

A heritage for Israel: the land was given to Israel by God to be handed on to future generations.
