Psalms 146:6

Who made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that is therein: who keeps truth forever:
Read Chapter 146

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
What then must we do, if we are not to hope in sons of men, nor in princes? What must we do? "Blessed is he whose Helper is the God of Jacob" (ver. 5): not this man or that man; not this angel or that angel; but, "blessed is he whose Helper is the God of Jacob:" for to Jacob also so great an Helper was He, that of Jacob He made him Israel. O mighty help! now he is Israel, "seeing God." While then thou art placed here, and a wanderer not yet seeing God, if thou hast the God of Jacob for thy Helper, from Jacob thou wilt become Israel, and wilt be "seeing God," and all toil and all groans shall come to an end, gnawing cares shall cease, happy praises shall succeed. "Blessed is he whose Helper is the God of Jacob;" of this Jacob. Wherefore is he happy? Meanwhile, while yet groaning in this life, "his hope is in the Lord his God." ...Who is this, "Lord his God"? ..."To us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things." Therefore...

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Truth. Houbigant, "his truth "and promises. (Haydock) The disposition of Cyrus towards the Jews had changed, in consequence of some false insinuations of their enemies. Wrong. The Babylonians have been, and the Samaritans will be, punished. Fettered. We may hope to be freed from the dominion of the Persians. (Calmet)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
