Psalms 108:2-3

Context

108:2 Awake, O stringed instrument and harp!

I will wake up at dawn! 1 

108:3 I will give you thanks before the nations, O Lord!

I will sing praises to you before foreigners! 2 

1 tn BDB 1007 s.v. שַׁחַר takes “dawn” as an adverbial accusative, though others understand it as a personified direct object. “Dawn” is used metaphorically for the time of deliverance and vindication the psalmist anticipates. When salvation “dawns,” the psalmist will “wake up” in praise.

2 tn Or “the peoples.”
