psa 124:1"A Song of degrees of David." If [it had not been] the LORD who was (a) on our side, now may Israel say;
(a) He shows that God was ready to help at need and that there was no other way to be saved, but by this means alone.
psa 124:3Then they had swallowed us up (b) quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:
(b) So unable were we to resist.
psa 124:4Then the (c) waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:
(c) He uses proper similitudes to express the great danger that the Church was in, and out of which God miraculously delivered them.
psa 124:7Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the (d) snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.
(d) For the wicked not only furiously rage against the faithful, but craftily imagined to destroy them.
