Psalm 129:7 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
Israel is gratefully to confess that, however much and sorely it was oppressed, it still has not succumbed. רבּת, together with רבּה, has occurred already in Psalm 65:10; Psalm 62:3, and it becomes usual in the post-exilic language, Psalm 120:6; Psalm 123:4, 2 Chronicles 30:18; Syriac rebath. The expression "from my youth" glances back to the time of the Egyptian bondage; for the time of the sojourn in Egypt was the time of Israel's youth (Hosea 2:17, Hosea 11:1, Jeremiah 2:2; Ezekiel 23:3). The protasis Psalm 129:1 is repeated in an interlinked, chain-like conjunction in order to complete the thought; for Psalm 129:2 is the turning-point, where גּם, having reference to the whole negative clause, signifies "also" in the sense of "nevertheless," ὅμως (synon. בּכל־בּכל), as in Ezekiel 16:28; Ecclesiastes 6:7, cf. above, Psalm 119:24 : although they oppressed me much and sore, yet have they not overpowered me (the construction is like Numbers 13:30, and frequently).

he that bindeth
Return sevenfold into the lap of our neighbors the taunts with which they have taunted you, O Lord!
As with the rumbling of chariots, they leap on the tops of the mountains, like the crackling of a flame of fire devouring the stubble, like a powerful army drawn up for battle.
