    But turned back, and dealt unfaithfully like their fathers: they were turned aside like a deceitful bow.

    World English Bible

    but turned back, and dealt treacherously like their fathers. They were turned aside like a deceitful
    bow.

    And they turned away, and kept not the covenant: even like their fathers they were turned aside as a crooked
    bow.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    But turned back, and dealt unfaithfully like their fathers: they were turned aside like a deceitful
    bow.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 78:57

    sino que se volvieron, y se rebelaron como sus padres; se volvieron como arco engañoso.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Psalms 77:57

    Verse 57. They were turned aside like a
    deceitful bow. ] The eastern bow, which when at rest is in the form of a [curved figure], must be recurved, or turned the contrary way, in order to be what is called bent and strung. If a person who is unskilful or weak attempt to recurve and string one of these bows, if he take not great heed it will spring back and regain its quiescent position, and perhaps break his arm. And sometimes I have known it, when bent, to start aside, and regain its quiescent position, to my no small danger, and in one or two cases to my injury. This image is frequently used in the sacred writings; but no person has understood it, not being acquainted with the eastern bow [curved figure], which must be recurved, or bent the contrary way, [figure] in order to be proper for use.

    If not well made, they will fly back in discharging the arrow. It is said of the bow of Jonathan, it turned not back, 2 Sam. i. 22, rwja gwn al lo nasog achor, "did not twist itself backward." It was a good bow, one on which he could depend. Hosea, Hosea vii. 16, compares the unfaithful Israelites to a deceitful bow; one that, when bent, would suddenly start aside and recover its former position. We may find the same passage in Jer. ix. 3. And this is precisely the kind of bow mentioned by Homer, Odyss. xxi., which none of Penelope's suitors could bend, called kampula toxa and agkula toxa, the crooked bow in the state of rest; but toxon palintonon, the recurred bow when prepared for use. And of this trial of strength and skill in the bending of the bow of Ulysses, none of the critics and commentators have been able to make any thing, because they knew not the instrument in question. On the toxou qhsiv of Homer, I have written a dissertation elsewhere. The image is very correct; these Israelites, when brought out of their natural bent, soon recoiled, and relapsed into their former state.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 56-72 - After the Israelites were settled in Canaan, the children were lik their fathers. God gave them his testimonies, but they turned back Presumptuous sins render even Israelites hateful to God's holiness, an exposed to his justice. Those whom the Lord forsakes become an eas prey to the destroyer. And sooner or later, God will disgrace his enemies. He set a good government over his people; a monarch after his own heart. With good reason does the psalmist make this finishing crowning instance of God's favour to Israel; for David was a type of Christ, the great and good Shepherd, who was humbled first, and the exalted; and of whom it was foretold, that he should be filled with the Spirit of wisdom and understanding. On the uprightness of his heart and the skilfulness of his hands, all his subjects may rely; and of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end. Every tria of human nature hitherto, confirms the testimony of Scripture, that the heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked, an nothing but being created anew by the Holy Ghost can cure the ungodliness of any __________________________________________________________________
