Psalms, Chapter 129
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.
