Psalms 103:9-10

Context

103:9 He does not always accuse,

and does not stay angry. 1 

103:10 He does not deal with us as our sins deserve; 2 

he does not repay us as our misdeeds deserve. 3 

1 tn The Hebrew verb נָטַר (natar) is usually taken to mean “to keep; to guard,” with “anger” being understood by ellipsis. The idiom “to guard anger” is then understood to mean “to remain angry” (see Lev 19:18; Jer 3:5, 12; Nah 1:2). However, it is possible that this is a homonymic root meaning “to be angry” (see HALOT 695 s.v. נטר).

2 tn Heb “not according to our sins does he do to us.”

3 tn Heb “and not according to our misdeeds does he repay us.”
