(6) O thou enemy . . .--This vocative gives no intelligible meaning. Translate, As for the enemy, they are made an utter wreck and perpetual ruin.

Destructions.--Properly, desolations, ruins, from a word meaning "to be dried up."

Come to a perpetual end.--Properly, are completed for ever.

Thou hast destroyed.--Some understand the relative: "the cities which thou hast destroyed."

Their memorial.--Better, their very memory is perished; literally, their memory, theirs. (Comp. "He cannot flatter, he"--Shakespeare, King Lear). The LXX. and Vulg. read, "with a sound," referring to the crash of falling cities. Some would substitute enemies for cities, but they lose the emphasis of the passage, which points to the utter evanishment from history of great cities as a consequence and sign of Divine judgment. Probably the poet thinks of Sodom and Gomorrha, whose overthrow left such a signal mark on the thought of Israel. We think of the mounds of earth which alone represent Nineveh and Babylon.

"'Mid far sands,

The palm-tree cinctured city stands,

Bright white beneath, as heaven, bright blue,

Leans over it, while the years pursue

Their course, unable to abate

Its paradisal laugh at fate.

One morn the Arab staggers blind

O'er a new tract of earth calcined

To ashes, silence, nothingness,

And strives, with dizzy wits, to guess

Whence fell the blow."--R. BROWNING: Easter Day.

Verse 6. - O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end. It is better to translate, with the Revised Version, The enemy are come to an end; they are desolate for ever - a continuance of the hyperbole already noticed in the preceding verse. And thou hast destroyed cities; their memorial is perished with them; rather, and as for the cities thou hast destroyed, their very memory has perished. This could only be an anticipation. It was fulfilled in the complete disappearance from history of the names of Zoba, Beth-rehob, and Tob, after the victory described in 2 Samuel 10:13, 14. 9:1-10 If we would praise God acceptably, we must praise him in sincerity, with our whole heart. When we give thanks for some one particular mercy, we should remember former mercies. Our joy must not be in the gift, so much as in the Giver. The triumphs of the Redeemer ought to be the triumphs of the redeemed. The almighty power of God is that which the strongest and stoutest of his enemies are no way able to stand before. We are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth, and that with him there is no unrighteousness. His people may, by faith, flee to him as their Refuge, and may depend on his power and promise for their safety, so that no real hurt shall be done to them. Those who know him to be a God of truth and faithfulness, will rejoice in his word of promise, and rest upon that. Those who know him to be an everlasting Father, will trust him with their souls as their main care, and trust in him at all times, even to the end; and by constant care seek to approve themselves to him in the whole course of their lives. Who is there that would not seek him, who never hath forsaken those that seek Him?
