Psalm 123-125

Supplemental notes for the Daily Bible Study Bible Reading Plan

by Wayne Blank

Psalm Chapter 123

"To Thee I lift up my eyes, O Thou who art enthroned in the heavens!" in this Psalm is a statement of faith and humility. It's also a practical observation of how magnificent "heaven" is to anyone who looks up, not into the darkness, but toward the light (see How High Is Heaven?; also Your Very Own Time Machine and We Have Liftoff!).

Heaven

"A Song of Ascents.

To Thee I lift up my eyes, O Thou who art enthroned in the heavens! [see What Is Jesus Christ Doing Right Now? and The Throne Of God, From Heaven To Earth]

Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to The Lord our God, till He have mercy upon us [see When Will You Be Judged?].

Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us, for we have had more than enough of contempt. Too long our soul [see Where Is Your Soul?] has been sated with the scorn of those who are at ease, the contempt of the proud." (Psalm 123:1-4 RSV)

Psalm Chapter 124

"We have escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and we have escaped!" is, from a Christian perspective (and everyone else, sooner or later, because everyone will be subject to Christ - see The Coming World Dictator) a prophecy of how Through The Gates Of Hell is going to happen.

To Meet The Lord In The Air

"A Song of Ascents. Of David.

If it had not been The Lord who was on our side, let Israel [see Physical and Spiritual Israel] now say - if it had not been The Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us, then they would have swallowed us up alive, when their anger was kindled against us; then the flood [see Hydrogen] would have swept us away, the torrent would have gone over us; then over us would have gone the raging waters.

Blessed be The Lord [see YHVH, Adonai, Jehovah, LORD], who has not given us as prey to their teeth! We have escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and we have escaped! Our help is in The Name of The Lord, who made heaven and earth [see the Fact Finder question below]." (Psalm 124:1-8 RSV)

Psalm Chapter 125

"Those who trust in The Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved" is not speaking of a merely physical place, but an invincible worldwide kingdom that is coming (see Zionism).

Zion

"A Song of Ascents.

Those who Trust in The Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides for ever. As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so The Lord is round about His people, from this time forth and for evermore.

For the scepter of wickedness [see They Shall Be Ashes] shall not rest upon the land allotted to the righteous, lest the righteous put forth their hands to do wrong.

Do good, O Lord, to those who are good, and to those who are upright in their hearts! [see The Lord's Plumb Line] But those who turn aside upon their crooked ways The Lord will lead away with evildoers! Peace be in Israel!" (Psalm 125:1-5 RSV)
