Geneva Study Bible
Psalms 129

 

 

Verse 1
"A Song of degrees." Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth, may a Israel now say:

(a) The Church now afflicted should remember how her condition has always been such from the beginning to be molested most grievously by the wicked, yet in time it has always been delivered.

Verse 4
The LORD [is] b righteous: he hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked.

(b) Because God is righteous, he cannot but plague his adversary, and deliver his as oxen out of the plough.

Verse 6
c Let them be as the grass [upon] the housetops, which withereth afore it groweth up:

(c) The enemies who lift themselves high, and as it were approach the Sun, are consumed with the heat of God's wrath, because they are not grounded in godly humility.

Verse 8
d Neither do they which go by say, The blessing of the LORD [be] upon you: we bless you in the name of the LORD.

(d) That is, the wicked will perish, and none will pass for them.
