Psalms 119:21

Context

119:21 You reprimand arrogant people.

Those who stray from your commands are doomed. 1 

Psalms 119:118

Context

119:118 You despise 2  all who stray from your statutes,

for they are deceptive and unreliable. 3 

1 tn Heb “accursed.” The traditional punctuation of the Hebrew text takes “accursed” with the previous line (“arrogant, accursed ones”), but it is preferable to take it with the second line as the predicate of the statement.

2 tn The Hebrew verb סָלָה (salah, “to disdain”) occurs only here and in Lam 1:15. Cognate usage in Aramaic and Akkadian, as well as Lam 1:15, suggest it may have a concrete nuance of “to throw away.”

3 tn Heb “for their deceit [is] falsehood.”
