John Dummelow's Commentary on the Bible
Psalms 125



Verses 1-5

Jehovah is the bulwark of Israel, but evildoers shall perish. Evidently the nation is under foreign rule: cp. Psalms 125:3.

2. The mountains] Jerusalem is high, but the hills, such as the Mt. of Olives and the Hill of Evil Counsel, are higher.

3. The rod of the wicked] RV 'the sceptre of wickedness,' i.e. heathen dominion shall be broken off lest in despair the righteous be tempted to turn aside to sinful practices. 5. Those who hesitate between serving Jehovah and worldliness will be swept away with heathen idolaters.
