1 tn The present translation understands כִּי (ki) in an emphatic or asseverative sense (“Certainly”). Other translation have “indeed” (NASB), “when” (NRSV), “so” (NEB), or leave the word untranslated (NIV).

2 tn Heb “the good way in which they should walk.”

3 tn Or “for an inheritance.”

4 tn The words “their sin” are not in the Hebrew text, but are supplied for clarification.

5 tn Heb “and act and give to each one according to all his ways because you know his heart.” In the Hebrew text vv. 28-30a actually contain one lengthy conditional sentence, which the translation has divided up for stylistic reasons.

6 tn Heb “Indeed you know, you alone, the heart of all the sons of mankind.”

7 tn Heb “their prayer and their requests for help.”

8 tn Heb “and accomplish their justice.”
