Psalms 123

Sutcliffe's Commentary on the Old and New TestamentsSutcliffe's Commentary

Verses 1-4

REFLECTIONS. This psalm teaches us that when the church is in trouble and contempt from proud, wicked, and unbelieving men, the ministers and people of God must associate for counsel and prayer; and as servants look up for instruction and defence from their masters, and as maids look up to their mistresses for a portion of work, so we must look to the Lord for help, not only to understand what he would have us to do, but also to learn how to do it, and in the exactest forms of obedience. So the prophets, and so the apostles were guided by the divine counsel, and God gave his blessing to their labours. It is equally wrong to run before the Lord, and to be indolent when we see our path.
