Psalm 78:35 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
That God was their rock - They recollected in their affliction that Jehovah was their Creator, and their Father; the Rock, the Source, not only of their being, but of all their blessings; or, that he was their sole Protector.
And the high God their Redeemer - ואל עליון גאלם veel elyon goalam, "And the strong God the Most High, their kinsman."

The Good Shepherd: a Farewell Sermon
In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have redeemed. In your strength you will guide them to your holy dwelling.
I prayed to the LORD and said, "Sovereign LORD, do not destroy your people, your own inheritance that you redeemed by your great power and brought out of Egypt with a mighty hand.
He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.
I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth.
Remember the nation you purchased long ago, the people of your inheritance, whom you redeemed-- Mount Zion, where you dwelt.
