The Defender of the Church…

Psalm 129 is a Psalm of great comfort to the church of Christ. Amidst turmoil, God promises that the enemies of Zion ((Zion hear is a metaphor for God’s people; where the reign of God is manifested, namely, among the church of God)) will be put to shame and turned backward. ((Psalm 129:5)) God promises that His glorious church ever shall prevail. As Calvin so perfectly summarized the purpose for the church’s suffering:

…that God subjects his Church to divers troubles and affections, to the end he may the better prove himself her deliverer and defender. ((Commentary on Psalm 129))
