Psalms 119:43-44

Context

119:43 Do not completely deprive me of a truthful testimony, 1 

for I await your justice.

119:44 Then I will keep 2  your law continually

now and for all time. 3 

1 tn Heb “do not snatch from my mouth a word of truth to excess.” The psalmist wants to be able to give a reliable testimony about the Lord’s loyal love (vv. 41-42), but if God does not intervene, the psalmist will be deprived of doing so, for the evidence of such love (i.e., deliverance) will be lacking.

2 tn The cohortative verbal form with vav (ו) conjunctive indicates purpose/result after the negated jussive (see v. 43).

3 tn Or “forever and ever.”
