Psalms 119:116-117

Context

119:116 Sustain me as you promised, 1  so that I will live. 2 

Do not disappoint me! 3 

119:117 Support me, so that I will be delivered.

Then I will focus 4  on your statutes continually.

1 tn Heb “according to your word.”

2 tn The prefixed verbal form with vav (ו) conjunctive indicates purpose/result after the preceding imperative.

3 tn Heb “do not make me ashamed of my hope.” After the Hebrew verb בּוֹשׁ (bosh, “to be ashamed”) the preposition מִן (min, “from”) often introduces the reason for shame.

4 tn Or “and that I might focus.” The two cohortatives with vav (ו) conjunctive indicate purpose/result after the imperative at the beginning of the verse.
