John Dummelow's Commentary on the Bible

Psalms 130



Verses 1-8

The De Profundis—a song of redemption from trouble through faith in God. Probably a very late Ps. The Ps. is antiphonal. First voice (Psalms 130:1-2), Second voice (3, 4), First voice (5, 6), Chorus (7, 8).

1. Out of the depths] i.e. from sore trouble.

4. Feared] Rather a startling statement. But the fear of God means true, earnest religion: cp. Psalms 19:10; Genesis 20:11.

6. RV 'more than watchmen look for the morning,' i.e. impatiently.

7. Plenteous redemption] i.e. abundant means of effecting salvation for His people.

8. Redeem, etc.] i.e. deliver not only from the consequences of sin, but from sin itself.
