Psalms 118:17-19

Context

118:17 I will not die, but live,

and I will proclaim what the Lord has done. 1 

118:18 The Lord severely 2  punished me,

but he did not hand me over to death.

118:19 Open for me the gates of the just king’s temple! 3 

I will enter through them and give thanks to the Lord.

1 tn Heb “the works of the Lord.”

2 tn The infinitive absolute emphasizes the following verbal idea.

3 tn Heb “the gates of justice.” The gates of the Lord’s temple are referred to here, as v. 20 makes clear. They are called “gates of justice” because they are the entrance to the just king’s palace. This has been specified in the translation for clarity.
