Psalms 124

Verse 1

124:1 [A Song of degrees of David.] If [it had not been] the LORD who was {a} on our side, now may Israel say;

(a) He shows that God was ready to help at need and that there was no other way to be saved, but by this means alone.

Verse 3

124:3 Then they had swallowed us up {b} quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:

(b) So unable were we to resist.

Verse 4

124:4 Then the {c} waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:

(c) He uses proper similitudes to express the great danger that the Church was in, and out of which God miraculously delivered them.

Verse 7

124:7 Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the {d} snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.

(d) For the wicked not only furiously rage against the faithful, but craftily imagined to destroy them.
