Psalms 119:111

Context

for they give me joy. 5 

Psalms 119:152

Context

119:152 I learned long ago that

you ordained your rules to last. 6 

1 tn Heb “in the way of your rules.”

2 tn Heb “as upon,” meaning “as if” (see 2 Chr 32:19).

3 tn Heb “all wealth.” The phrase refers to all kinds of wealth and riches. See Prov 1:13; 6:31; 24:4; Ezek 27:12, 18.

4 tn Heb “men of my counsel.” That is, God’s rules are like advisers to the psalmist, for they teach him how to live in a godly manner that refutes the accusations of his enemies.

5 tn Heb “for the joy of my heart [are] they.”

6 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).
