Psalms 119:50

Context

119:50 This 1  is what comforts me in my trouble,

for your promise revives me. 2 

Psalms 119:93

Context

119:93 I will never forget your precepts,

for by them you have revived me.

Psalms 119:130

Context

119:130 Your instructions are a doorway through which light shines. 3 

They give 4  insight to the untrained. 5 

1 tn The demonstrative “this” refers back to the hope just mentioned or forward to the statement in the second line concerning the promise’s power to revive. See the note on the word “me” at the end of the verse for further discussion.

2 tn The hope generated by the promise (see v. 49b) brings comfort because (note “for” at the beginning of the line) the promise revives the psalmist’s spirits. Another option is to take כִּי (ki) at the beginning of the second line in the sense of “that,” in which case “this” refers to the promise’s power to revive.

3 tn Heb “the doorway of your words gives light.” God’s “words” refer here to the instructions in his law (see vv. 9, 57).

4 tn Heb “it [i.e., the doorway] gives.”

5 tn Or “the [morally] naive,” that is, the one who is young and still in the process of learning right from wrong and distinguishing wisdom from folly. See Pss 19:7; 116:6.
