CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Till he fill thy mouth with laughing - Until he make thee completely happy. The word rendered "till" (עד ‛ad), is rendered by Dr. Good, "even yet." Noyes, following Houbigant, DeWette, and Michaelis, proposes to change the pointing, and to read עד ‛ôd, instead of עד ‛ad - meaning, "while."

Objection 2: Further, the Philosopher says (Topic. ii) that "we do not arrive at understanding several things at the same …

Instruction for the Ignorant:
"You will laugh at violence and famine, And you will not be afraid of wild beasts.
"But no one says, 'Where is God my Maker, Who gives songs in the night,
A Song of Ascents. When the LORD brought back the captive ones of Zion, We were like those who dream.
Then our mouth was filled with laughter And our tongue with joyful shouting; Then they said among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them."
