Psalms 119:33

Context

ה (He)

119:33 Teach me, O Lord, the lifestyle prescribed by your statutes, 1 

so that I might observe it continually. 2 

Psalms 119:73

Context

י (Yod)

119:73 Your hands made me and formed me. 3 

Give me understanding so that I might learn 4  your commands.

1 tn Heb “the way of your statutes.”

2 tn Heb “and I will keep it to the end.” The prefixed verbal form with vav (ו) conjunctive indicates purpose/result after the preceding imperative. The Hebrew term עֵקֶב (’eqev) is understood to mean “end” here. Another option is to take עֵקֶב (’eqev) as meaning “reward” here (see Ps 19:11) and to translate, “so that I might observe it and be rewarded.”

3 tn Heb “made me and established me.” The two verbs also appear together in Deut 32:6, where God, compared to a father, is said to have “made and established” Israel.

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