Context

116:4 I called on the name of the Lord,

“Please Lord, rescue my life!”

our God is compassionate.

116:6 The Lord protects 1  the untrained; 2 

I was in serious trouble 3  and he delivered me.

for the Lord has vindicated you. 5 

116:8 Yes, 6  Lord, 7  you rescued my life from death,

and kept my feet from stumbling.

1 tn Heb “guards.” The active participle indicates this is a characteristic of the Lord.

3 tn Heb “I was low.”

4 tn Heb “return, my soul, to your place of rest.”

5 tn The Hebrew idiom גָּמַל עַל (gamalal) means “to repay,” here in a positive sense (cf. Ps 13:5).

6 tn Or “for.”

7 tnLord” is supplied here in the translation for clarification.
