Psalm 124:6 Parallel
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

Blessed be the Lord - The Lord be praised; or, We have reason to praise the Lord because we have been delivered from these calamities.

Who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth - The figure is here changed, though the same idea is retained. The imago is now that of destruction by wild beasts - a form of destruction not less fearful than that which comes from overflowing waters. Such changes of imagery constantly occur in the Book of Psalms, and in impassioned poetry everywhere. The mind is full of a subject; numerous illustrations occur in the rapidity of thought; and the mind seizes upon one and then upon another as best suited to express the emotions of the soul. The next verse furnishes another instance of this sudden transition.

It is the speech of the soul face to face with God. Its words are as simple and unaffected as human words can be, for it is the genius
