Psalms 119:137

Context

צ (Tsade)

119:137 You are just, O Lord,

and your judgments are fair.

1 tn Heb “word.”

2 tn Heb “which [is] for your fear,” that is, the promise made to those who exhibit fear of God.

3 sn God’s commands are a reliable guide to right and wrong. By keeping them the psalmist is doing what is right, yet he is still persecuted.

4 tn “For this reason” connects logically with the statement made in v. 126. Because the judgment the psalmist fears (see vv. 119-120) is imminent, he remains loyal to God’s law.
