Psalms 124* The deliverance of the church. (1-5) Thankfulness for thedeliverance. (6-8)1-5 God suffers the enemies of his people sometimes to prevailvery far against them, that his power may be seen the more intheir deliverance. Happy the people whose God is Jehovah, a Godall-sufficient. Besides applying this to any particulardeliverance wrought in our days and the ancient times, we shouldhave in our thoughts the great work of redemption by JesusChrist, by which believers were rescued from Satan. 6-8 God is the Author of all our deliverances, and he must havethe glory. The enemies lay snares for God's people, to bringthem into sin and trouble, and to hold them there. Sometimesthey seem to prevail; but in the Lord let us put our trust, andwe shall not be put to confusion. The believer will ascribe allthe honour of his salvation, to the power, mercy, and truth ofGod, and look back with wonder and thanksgiving on the way inwhich the Lord has led him. Let us rejoice that our help for thetime to come is in him who made heaven and earth
