View Psalms 129 in the note window.
The people of God commemorate their deliverance out of sore
afflictions, ver. 1 - 4.
The destruction of their enemies, ver. 5 - 8.
A song of degrees.
1: From my youth - From the time that I was a people.
4: Righteous - Faithful or merciful. The cords - Wherewith the plow
was drawn. By these cords he understands all their plots and endeavours.
6: House - tops - Which there were flat. Which - Having no deep
root, never comes to maturity. And so all their designs shall be abortive.
8: The blessing - Which was an usual salutation given by passengers
to reapers: so the meaning is, it never continues 'till the harvest comes.
