Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 126

 

 

Verse 1

When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.

Turned — Brought the captive Israelites out of Babylon into their own land.

Dream — We were so surprized and astonished.


Verse 4

Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the south.

Turn — As thou hast brought us home, bring also the rest of our brethren.

As — As thou art pleased sometimes to send floods of water into dry and barren grounds, such as the southern parts of Canaan were.
