Psalms 124

Introduction

Overview

Psalms 124:1, The church blesses God for a miraculous deliverance.

It is uncertain what the particular deliverance was which is celebrated in this Psalm. Some refer it to the deliverance of Hezekiah from Sennacherib; and others to the return from the Babylonian captivity; while Dr. A. Clarke refers it to that of the Jews from the massacre intended by Haman.
