(7) Dwelling place.--Literally, pasture, as in Jeremiah 23:3; Jeremiah 49:20; Jeremiah 1:19. The figure is a favourite one in the Asaphic group of psalms.

Former iniquities.--Better, iniquities of former ones, i.e., of ancestors. (Comp. Leviticus 26:45, "covenant of their ancestors," and for the thought Exodus 20:5; Leviticus 26:39.)

Prevent.--Better, come to meet. Daniel 9:16 seems to combine the language of this verse and Psalm 79:4.
