Psalms 136:24

 

 

And has rescued us from our adversaries, For His lovingkindness is everlasting;

Albert Barnes' Notes on the Whole Bible

And hath redeemed us from our enemies - Has rescued or delivered us from all our foes; has given to us freedom and peace.

For his mercy … - By all that he has done in order to redeem us; and by all the prosperity, happiness, and peace which have followed as the result of that, he has showed his mercy. So it is in the greater work of the redemption of the soul. By all the love manifested in the gift of a Saviour - by all the sufferings and toils of his life - by his “agony and bloody sweat” in the garden of Gethsemane - by his “cross and passion,” by all the blessings of salvation here, all our peace, all our purity, all our consolations, all our hopes, and by all the glories of heaven hereafter - the mercy of God in our redemption is to be estimated and measured. Who can take the full account of it?

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And hath redeemed us from our enemies,.... Temporal enemies, tyrants, and oppressors: and spiritual ones, sin, Satan, the world, the law, death, and hell;

for his mercy endureth for ever; as is clearly seen in redemption by Jesus Christ, where mercy and truth have met together; and which is a distinguishing mercy to the sons of men, not granted to angels.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

Psalms 136:24 And hath redeemed us from our enemies: for his mercy [endureth] for ever.

Ver. 24. And hath redeemed us] Or, broken us off, pulled us away, as by violence; for they would never else have loosed us. This is priori maior misericordia, a greater mercy than the former, saith Kimchi; to redeem is more than to preserve.
