    Definitions for Psalms 129:5

    Let - To hinder or obstruct.

    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 129:5

    Let them all be confounded - They shall be confounded. They who hate Zion, the Church of God, hate God himself; and all such must be dealt with as enemies, and be utterly confounded.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 129:5

    Let them all be confounded and turned back ... - This might be rendered in the indicative, "they are ashamed," but the connection seems to require the rendering in our version. It is a prayer that God would now interpose as he had done in former times, and that he would cause all the haters of Zion to be put to shame as formerly.
