Psalm 124:8 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Our help is in the name of the Lord - בשום מימרא דיי beshum meywra depai, Chaldee, "In the name of the Word of the Lord." So in the second verse, "Unless the Word of the Lord had been our Helper:" the substantial Word; not a word spoken, or a prophecy delivered, but the person who was afterwards termed Ὁ Λογος του Θεου, the Word of God. This deliverance of the Jews appears to me the most natural interpretation of this Psalm: and probably Mordecai was the author.

PSALM CXXIV.
[Psalm 124] 8,6,8,6,8,8,7 Wo Gott der Herr nicht zu uns hält [48]Justus Jonas trans. by Catherine Winkworth, 1869 If God were not upon our side When foes around us rage, Were not Himself our Help and Guide When bitter war they wage, Were He not Israel's mighty Shield, To whom their utmost crafts must yield, We surely must have perished. But now no human wit or might Should make us quail for fear, God sitteth in the highest height, And makes their counsels clear; When craftiest snares and nets

Messiah Rising from the Dead
For Thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt Thou suffer Thine Holy One to see corruption. T hat the Gospel is a divine revelation may be summarily proved from the character of its Author. If an infidel was so far divested of prejudice and prepossession, as to read the history of Jesus Christ, recorded by the Evangelists, with attention, and in order to form his judgment of it, simply and candidly, as evidence should appear; I think he must observe many particulars in his spirit and conduct,
