Psalms 124

* The deliverance of the church. (1-5) Thankfulness for the

deliverance. (6-8)1-5 God suffers the enemies of his people sometimes to prevail

very far against them, that his power may be seen the more in

their deliverance. Happy the people whose God is Jehovah, a God

all-sufficient. Besides applying this to any particular

deliverance wrought in our days and the ancient times, we should

have in our thoughts the great work of redemption by Jesus

Christ, by which believers were rescued from Satan.
6-8 God is the Author of all our deliverances, and he must have

the glory. The enemies lay snares for God's people, to bring

them into sin and trouble, and to hold them there. Sometimes

they seem to prevail; but in the Lord let us put our trust, and

we shall not be put to confusion. The believer will ascribe all

the honour of his salvation, to the power, mercy, and truth of

God, and look back with wonder and thanksgiving on the way in

which the Lord has led him. Let us rejoice that our help for the

time to come is in him who made heaven and earth
