Psalms 119:16

Context

119:16 I find delight 1  in your statutes;

I do not forget your instructions. 2 

Matthew 4:4

Context
4:4 But he answered, 3  “It is written, ‘Man 4  does not live 5  by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” 6 

1 tn The imperfects in this verse emphasize the attitude the psalmist maintains toward God’s law. Another option is to translate with the future tense, “I will find delight…I will not forget.”

2 tn Heb “your word.” Many medieval Hebrew mss as well as the LXX read the plural here.

3 tn Grk “answering, he said.” The participle ἀποκριθείς (apokriqeis) is redundant, but the syntax of the phrase has been changed for clarity.

4 tn Or “a person.” Greek ὁ ἄνθρωπος (Jo anqrwpo") is used generically for humanity. The translation “man” is used because the emphasis in Jesus’ response seems to be on his dependence on God as a man.

5 tn Grk “will not live.” The verb in Greek is a future tense, but it is unclear whether it is meant to be taken as a command (also known as an imperatival future) or as a statement of reality (predictive future).

6 sn A quotation from Deut 8:3.
