Psalms 118:25-26

Context

118:25 Please Lord, deliver!

Please Lord, grant us success! 1 

118:26 May the one who comes in the name of the Lord 2  be blessed!

We will pronounce blessings on you 3  in the Lord’s temple. 4 

1 sn A petition for deliverance and success seems odd in a psalm thanking God for deliverance, but it is not unique (see Ps 9:19-20). The people ask God to continue to intervene for them as he has for the psalmist.

2 sn The people refer here to the psalmist, who enters the Lord’s temple to thank him publicly (see vv. 19-21), as the one who comes in the name of the Lord.

3 tn The pronominal suffix is second masculine plural, but the final mem (ם) is probably dittographic (note the mem [מ] at the beginning of the following form) or enclitic, in which case the suffix may be taken as second masculine singular, referring to the psalmist.

4 tn Heb “from the house of the Lord.”
