33 He smote their vines also and their fig trees; and brake the trees of their coasts.
33 he struck down their vines and fig trees and shattered the trees of their country.
33 He struck down their vines and fig trees, and shattered the trees of their country.
33 He wasted their vines and fig trees, smashed their groves of trees to splinters;
33 He struck their vines also, and their fig trees, And splintered the trees of their territory.
33 He ruined their grapevines and fig trees and shattered all the trees.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Psalm 105:33
Commentary on Psalm 105:24-45
(Read Psalm 105:24-45)
As the believer commonly thrives best in his soul when under the cross; so the church also flourishes most in true holiness, and increases in number, while under persecution. Yet instruments shall be raised up for their deliverance, and plagues may be expected by persecutors. And see the special care God took of his people in the wilderness. All the benefits bestowed on Israel as a nation, were shadows of spiritual blessings with which we are blessed in Christ Jesus. Having redeemed us with his blood, restored our souls to holiness, and set us at liberty from Satan's bondage, he guides and guards us all the way. He satisfies our souls with the bread of heaven, and the water of life from the Rock of salvation, and will bring us safely to heaven. He redeems his servants from all iniquity, and purifies them unto himself, to be a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
