Psalm 14:5 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
There were they in great fear - This is a manifest allusion to the history of the Canaanitish nations; they were struck with terror at the sight of the Israelites, and by this allusion the psalmist shows that a destruction similar to that which fell upon them, should fall on the Babylonians. Several of the versions add, from Psalm 53:5, "Where no fear was." They were struck with terror, where no real cause of terror existed. Their fears had magnified their danger.
For God is in the generation - They feared the Israelites, because they knew that the Almighty God was among them.

Strike them with terror, LORD; let the nations know they are only mortal.
If I had spoken out like that, I would have betrayed your children.
Their children will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed.
