Psalm 124:3 Parallel
CommentaryPsalm 124:3 Parallel Commentaries
Potiphar was furious when he heard his wife's story about how Joseph had treated her.
But if the LORD does something entirely new and the ground opens its mouth and swallows them and all their belongings, and they go down alive into the grave, then you will know that these men have shown contempt for the LORD."
The ropes of death entangled me; floods of destruction swept over me.
Don't let them say, "Look, we got what we wanted! Now we will eat him alive!"
For the choir director: A psalm of David, regarding the time the Philistines seized him in Gath. To be sung to the tune "Dove on Distant Oaks." O God, have mercy on me, for people are hounding me. My foes attack me all day long.
I am constantly hounded by those who slander me, and many are boldly attacking me.
He will send help from heaven to rescue me, disgracing those who hound me. Interlude My God will send forth his unfailing love and faithfulness.
