2 If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us:
2 if the Lord had not been on our side when people attacked us,
2 if it had not been the Lord who was on our side when people rose up against us,
2 If God hadn't been for us when everyone went against us,
2 "If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, When men rose up against us,
2 What if the Lord had not been on our side when people attacked us?
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Psalm 124:2
Commentary on Psalm 124:1-5
(Read Psalm 124:1-5)
God suffers the enemies of his people sometimes to prevail very far against them, that his power may be seen the more in their deliverance. Happy the people whose God is Jehovah, a God all-sufficient. Besides applying this to any particular deliverance wrought in our days and the ancient times, we should have in our thoughts the great work of redemption by Jesus Christ, by which believers were rescued from Satan.
