Psalms 119:138

Context

119:138 The rules you impose are just, 1 

and absolutely reliable.

Psalms 119:152

Context

119:152 I learned long ago that

you ordained your rules to last. 2 

1 tn Heb “you commanded [in] justice your rules.”

2 tn Heb “long ago I knew concerning your rules, that forever you established them.” See v. 89 for the same idea. The translation assumes that the preposition מִן (min) prefixed to “your rules” introduces the object of the verb יָדַע (yada’), as in 1 Sam 23:23. Another option is that the preposition indicates source, in which case one might translate, “Long ago I realized from your rules that forever you established them” (cf. NIV, NRSV).
