PSALM CXXIX. Chapter Overview

The people of God commemorate their deliverance out of sore afflictions, verse 1-4.
The destruction of their enemies, verse 5-8.
A song of degrees.

Verse 1
From my youth - From the time that I was a people.

Verse 4
Righteous - Faithful or merciful. The cords - Wherewith the plow was drawn. By these cords he understands all their plots and endeavours.

Verse 6
House-tops - Which there were flat. Which - Having no deep root, never comes to maturity. And so all their designs shall be abortive.

Verse 8
The blessing - Which was an usual salutation given by passengers to reapers: so the meaning is, it never continues 'till the harvest comes.
