Psalms 112:5

Context

112:5 It goes well for the one 1  who generously lends money,

and conducts his business honestly. 2 

Psalms 112:9

Context

112:9 He generously gives 3  to the needy;

his integrity endures. 4 

He will be vindicated and honored. 5 

1 tn Heb “man.”

2 tn Heb “he sustains his matters with justice.”

3 tn Heb “he scatters, he gives.”

4 tn Heb “stands forever.”

5 tn Heb “his horn will be lifted up in honor.” The horn of an ox underlies the metaphor (see Deut 33:17; 1 Kgs 22:11; Ps 92:10). The horn of the wild ox is frequently a metaphor for military strength; the idiom “exalt/lift up the horn” signifies military victory (see 1 Sam 2:10; Pss 89:17, 24; 92:10; Lam 2:17).
