Psalms 103:13-15

Context

103:13 As a father has compassion on his children, 1 

so the Lord has compassion on his faithful followers. 2 

103:14 For he knows what we are made of; 3 

he realizes 4  we are made of clay. 5 

103:15 A person’s life is like grass. 6 

Like a flower in the field it flourishes,

1 tn Or “sons,” but the Hebrew term sometimes refers to children in general.

2 tn Heb “those who fear him.”

3 tn Heb “our form.”

4 tn Heb “remembers.”

5 tn Heb “we [are] clay.”

6 tn Heb “[as for] mankind, like grass [are] his days.” The Hebrew noun אֱנוֹשׁ (’enosh) is used here generically of human beings. What is said is true of all mankind.
