Psalm 125:5 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
After the fact of the divine succour has been expressed, in Psalm 124:6 follows the thanksgiving for it, and in Psalm 124:7 the joyful shout of the rescued one. In Psalm 124:6 the enemies are conceived of as beasts of prey on account of their bloodthirstiness, just as the worldly empires are in the Book of Daniel; in Psalm 124:7 as "fowlers" on account of their cunning. According to the punctuation it is not to be rendered: Our soul is like a bird that is escaped, in which case it would have been accented בפשׁנו כצפור, but: our soul (subject with Rebia magnum) is as a bird (כּצפור as in Hosea 11:11; Proverbs 23:32; Job 14:2, instead of the syntactically more usual כּצּפור) escaped out of the snare of him who lays snares (יוקשׁ, elsewhere יקושׁ, יקוּשׁ, a fowler, Psalm 91:3). נשׁבר (with ā beside Rebia) is 3rd:praet.: the snare was burst, and we - we became free. In Psalm 124:8 (cf. Psalm 121:2; Psalm 134:3) the universal, and here pertinent thought, viz., the help of Israel is in the name of Jahve, the Creator of the world, i.e., in Him who is manifest as such and is continually verifying Himself, forms the epiphonematic close. Whether the power of the world seeks to make the church of Jahve like to itself or to annihilate it, it is not a disavowal of its God, but a faithful confession, stedfast even to death, that leads to its deliverance.

with the workers
And as for all who walk by this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the Israel of God.
My foot has held fast to his steps; I have kept his way and have not turned aside.
Blessed is the man who makes the LORD his trust, who does not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after a lie!
that though the wicked sprout like grass and all evildoers flourish, they are doomed to destruction forever;
They pour out their arrogant words; all the evildoers boast.
I will not set before my eyes anything that is worthless. I hate the work of those who fall away; it shall not cling to me.
May you see your children's children! Peace be upon Israel!
