Psalms 125 Commentary - Matthew Henry Commentary on the Whole Bible (Concise)

Chapter 125

The security of the righteous. (1-3) Prayer for them, The ruin of the wicked. (4,5)

Verses 1-3 All those minds shall be truly stayed, that are stayed on God. They shall be as Mount Zion, firm as it is; a mountain supported by providence, much more as a holy mountain supported by promise. They cannot be removed from confidence in God. They abide for ever in that grace which is the earnest of their everlasting continuance in glory. Committing themselves to God, they shall be safe from their enemies. Even mountains may moulder and come to nothing, and rocks be removed, but God's covenant with his people cannot be broken, nor his care of them cease. Their troubles shall last no longer than their strength will bear them up under them. The rod of the wicked may come, may fall upon the righteous, upon their persons, their estates, their liberties, their families names, on any thing that falls to their lot; only it cannot reach their souls. And though it may come upon their lot, it shall not rest thereon. The Lord will make all work together for their good. The wicked shall only prove a correcting rod, not a destroying sword; even this rod shall not remain upon them, lest they distrust the promise, thinking God has cast them off.

Verses 4-5 God's promises should quicken our prayers. The way of holiness is straight; there are no windings or shiftings in it. But the ways of sinners are crooked. They shift from one purpose to another, and turn hither and thither to deceive; but disappointment and misery shall befal them. Those who cleave to the ways of God, though they may have trouble in their way, their end shall be peace. The pleading of their Saviour for them, secures to them the upholding power and preserving grace of their God. Lord, number us with them, in time, and to eternity.

Psalms 125 Commentary - Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible

PSALM 125

Psalms 125:1-5 . God honors the confidence of His people, by protection and deliverance, and leaves hypocrites to the doom of the wicked.

1, 2. Mount Zion--as an emblem of permanence, and locality of Jerusalem as one of security, represent the firm and protected condition of God's people (compare Psalms 46:5 ), supported not only by Providence, but by covenant promise. Even the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed, but God's kindness shall not depart, nor His covenant of peace be removed ( Isaiah 54:10 ).
They that trust--are "His people," ( Psalms 125:2 ).

3. Though God may leave them for a time under the "rod," or power ( Psalms 2:9 ), and oppression of the wicked for a time, as a chastisement, He will not suffer them to be tempted so as to fall into sin ( 1 Corinthians 10:13 ). The wicked shall only prove a correcting rod to them, not a destroying sword; even this rod shall not remain ("rest") on them, lest they be tempted to despair and apostasy ( Psalms 73:13 Psalms 73:14 ). God may even try His people to the uttermost: when nothing is before our eyes but pure despair, then He delivers us and gives life in death, and makes us blessed in the curse ( 2 Corinthians 1:8 2 Corinthians 1:9 ) [LUTHER].
the lot--the possession, literally, "Canaan," spiritually, the heavenly inheritance of holiness and bliss which is appointed to the righteous. Sin's dominion shall not permanently come between the believer and his inheritance.

4. (Compare Psalms 7:10 , 84:11 ).

5. Those who turn aside (under temptation) permanently show that they are hypocrites, and their lot or portion shall be with the wicked ( Psalms 28:3 ).
crooked ways--(Compare Deuteronomy 9:16 , Malachi 2:8 Malachi 2:9 ).
their--is emphatic; the "crooked ways" proceed from their own hearts. The true Israel is here distinguished from the false. Scripture everywhere opposes the Jewish delusion that mere outward descent would save ( Romans 2:28 Romans 2:29 , Romans 9:6 Romans 9:7 , Galatians 6:16 ). The byways of sin from the way of life.
