Commentary Critical And Explanatory On The Whole Bible by Robert Jamieson

Ps 123:1-4. An earnest and expecting prayer for divine aid in distress.

Ps 123:1-4. An earnest and expecting prayer for divine aid in distress.

1. (Compare Ps 121:1).

thou that dwellest -- literally, |sittest as enthroned| (compare Ps 2:4; 113:4, 5).

2. Deference, submission, and trust, are all expressed by the figure. In the East, servants in attending on their masters are almost wholly directed by signs, which require the closest observance of the hands of the latter. The servants of God should look (1) to His directing hand, to appoint them their work; (2) to His supplying hand (Ps 104:28), to give them their portion in due season; (3) to His protecting hand, to right them when wronged; (4) to His correcting hand (Isa 9:13; 1Pe 5:6; compare Ge 16:6); (5) to His rewarding hand.

3. contempt -- was that of the heathen, and, perhaps, Samaritans (Ne 1:3; 2:19).

4. of those that are at ease -- self-complacently, disregarding God's law, and despising His people.
