A Song of degrees.
A prayer to the lord that they may be preserved, verses 1 to 4; that the coming of the lord and redemption are expected, verses 5 to 8.
Verses 5, 6, 7, 8. The subject here treated of is concerning the coming of the lord into the world, and his reception by those who are in the good of love; the coming of the lord is signified by waiting for jehovah, as expressed by the words my soul waits for the lord, because with him is redemption, and he will redeem Israel; and his reception by those who are in the good of love, is signified by watching for the morning, morning there signifying in the supreme sense, the lord, and in the internal sense, his kingdom and church, and they that watch for the morning signify those who expect the coming of the lord, who are they that are in the good of love, inasmuch as they are the persons to whom the lord is the morning; since morning signifies the lord, his coming, also his kingdom and church, and the good of love which is from him, it may hence be manifest what is meant by morning in the following passages, "Make me to hear your mercy in the morning;" " I will sing in the morning of your mercy." AE 179.
Verses 7, 8. Let Israel hope in jehovah, for with jehovah is mercy, and with him is plentiful redemption. And he will redeem Israel from all his iniquities. Redemption denotes deliverance, Israel denotes the church, to reform and deliver from false principles those who were of the church, is signified by his redeeming Israel from all his iniquities, AE 328.PSALMS 130 Other translations - previous - next - meaning - Psalms - BM Home - Full Page
