6 Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.
6 Praise be to the Lord, who has not let us be torn by their teeth.
6 Blessed be the Lord, who has not given us as prey to their teeth!
6 Oh, blessed be God! He didn't go off and leave us. He didn't abandon us defenseless, helpless as a rabbit in a pack of snarling dogs.
6 Blessed be the Lord, Who has not given us as prey to their teeth.
6 Praise the Lord, who did not let their teeth tear us apart!
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Psalm 124:6
Commentary on Psalm 124:6-8
(Read Psalm 124:6-8)
God is the Author of all our deliverances, and he must have the glory. The enemies lay snares for God's people, to bring them into sin and trouble, and to hold them there. Sometimes they seem to prevail; but in the Lord let us put our trust, and we shall not be put to confusion. The believer will ascribe all the honour of his salvation, to the power, mercy, and truth of God, and look back with wonder and thanksgiving on the way in which the Lord has led him. Let us rejoice that our help for the time to come is in him who made heaven and earth.
