Tehillim / Psalms 126, ספר תהילים קכו, Part 2, Being handed over for destruction and the Gospel Message

by

The Lord is great in His mercy to deliver His people. This brings great joy to His people, and is the meaning of the joy of the Lord. The psalm continues saying, ג הִגְדִּיל יְהֹוָה לַעֲשֹוֹת עִמָּנוּ הָיִינוּ שְֹמֵחִים: ד שׁוּבָה יְהֹוָה אֶת-שְׁבִותֵנוּ [שְׁבִיתֵנוּ] כַּאֲפִיקִים בַּנֶּגֶב: ה הַזֹּרְעִים בְּדִמְעָה בְּרִנָּה יִקְצֹרוּ: 126:3 The Lord has done great things for us; We are glad. 126:4 Restore our captivity, O Lord, As the streams in the South. 126:5 Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful shouting. (NASB) The Aramaic Targum states, 126:3 The Lord has done great good to us; we are joyful. 126:4 O Lord, make our exiles return, like a land that is made habitable when fountains of water flow during drought. 126:5 Those who sow with tears will harvest with praise. (EMC) The interpretation of the psalm is asking the Lord to restore the people to the land. Restoration to the land is a part of the promises of God. The psalm concludes saying, ו הָלוֹךְ יֵלֵךְ | וּבָכֹה נֹשֵֹא מֶשֶׁךְ-הַזָּרַע בֹּא-יָבוֹא בְרִנָּה נֹשֵֹא אֲלֻמֹּתָיו: 126:6 He who goes to and fro weeping, carrying his bag of seed, Shall indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves with him. (NASB) The one who sows requires a place to sow the seed. The Land of Israel is the ideal place for His people. Considering the Word of God, the seed of truth may be sown anywhere!
