1 Peter 5:7

5:7 by casting 1  all your cares 2  on him because he cares for you.

Psalms 55:22


55:22 Throw your burden 3  upon the Lord,

and he will sustain you. 4 

He will never allow the godly to be upended. 5 

1 tn Or “throwing on”; “loading.” Some scholars take the participle to function imperativally, or as attendant circumstance – thus, “cast.” See below for discussion.

sn Casting. According to ExSyn 630, “Although treated as an independent command in several modern translations (e.g., RSV, NRSV, NIV), the participle [casting] should be connected with the verb of v 6, ταπεινώθητε [tapeinwqhte, Humble yourselves]. As such, it is not offering a new command, but is defining how believers are to humble themselves. Taking the participle as means enriches the understanding of both verbs: Humbling oneself is not a negative act of self-denial per se, but a positive one of active dependence on God for help.”

2 tn Or “anxiety, burden,” but using a word from the same root as the verb “cares” in the last part of the verse.

3 tn The Hebrew noun occurs only here.

4 tn The pronoun is singular; the psalmist addresses each member of his audience individually.

5 tn Heb “he will never allow swaying for the righteous.”
