Arthur Peake's Commentary on the Bible

Psalms 129



Verses 1-8

CXXIX. Persecuted but not Cast Down.

Psalms 129:1-4. Israel's tyrants compared to ploughmen who have extended their ploughing far, but Yahweh in His righteousness cut the cord which fastened the ox to the plough and then, of course, the ploughing ceased.

Psalms 129:5-8. The enemies of Zion are to be like grass which springs up casually on the flat roof, but before it reaches its full height (?) is withered. Nobody would think of formal benediction on a crop which was not worth the carrying.
