Psalms 102:13-14

Context

102:13 You will rise up and have compassion on Zion. 1 

For it is time to have mercy on her,

for the appointed time has come.

102:14 Indeed, 2  your servants take delight in her stones,

and feel compassion for 3  the dust of her ruins. 4 

1 tn The imperfect verbal forms are understood as expressing the psalmist’s confidence in God’s intervention. Another option is to take them as expressing the psalmist’s request or wish, “You, rise up and have compassion!”

2 tn Or “for.”

3 tn The Poel of חָנַן (khanan) occurs only here and in Prov 14:21, where it refers to having compassion on the poor.

4 tn Heb “her dust,” probably referring to the dust of the city’s rubble.
