Psalms 124 Commentary - Matthew Henry Commentary on the Whole Bible (Concise)

Chapter 124

The deliverance of the church. (1-5) Thankfulness for the deliverance. (6-8)

Verses 1-5 God suffers the enemies of his people sometimes to prevail very far against them, that his power may be seen the more in their deliverance. Happy the people whose God is Jehovah, a God all-sufficient. Besides applying this to any particular deliverance wrought in our days and the ancient times, we should have in our thoughts the great work of redemption by Jesus Christ, by which believers were rescued from Satan.

Verses 6-8 God is the Author of all our deliverances, and he must have the glory. The enemies lay snares for God's people, to bring them into sin and trouble, and to hold them there. Sometimes they seem to prevail; but in the Lord let us put our trust, and we shall not be put to confusion. The believer will ascribe all the honour of his salvation, to the power, mercy, and truth of God, and look back with wonder and thanksgiving on the way in which the Lord has led him. Let us rejoice that our help for the time to come is in him who made heaven and earth.

Psalms 124 Commentary - Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible

PSALM 124

Psalms 124:1-8 . The writer, for the Church, praises God for past, and expresses trust for future, deliverance from foes.

1, 2. on our side--for us ( Psalms 56:9 ).
now--or, "oh! let Israel"

2. rose . . . against, &c.--( Psalms 3:1 , 56:11 ).

3. Then--that is, the time of our danger.
quick--literally, "living" ( Numbers 16:32 Numbers 16:33 ), description of ferocity.

4, 5. (Compare Psalms 18:4 Psalms 18:16 ).

5. The epithet proud added to waters denotes insolent enemies.

6, 7. The figure is changed to that of a rapacious wild beast ( Psalms 3:7 ), and then of a fowler ( Psalms 91:3 ), complete escape is denoted by breaking the net.

8. (Compare Psalms 121:2 ).
name--in the usual sense ( Psalms 5:11 , 20:1 ). He thus places over against the great danger the omnipotent God, and drowns, as it were in an anthem, the wickedness of the whole world and of hell, just as a great fire consumes a little drop of water [LUTHER].
