Psalms 119:54-55


119:54 Your statutes have been my songs 1 

in the house where I live. 2 

119:55 I remember your name during the night, O Lord,

and I will keep 3  your law.

1 tn Heb “songs were your statutes to me.”

2 tn Heb “in the house of my dwelling place.” Some take the Hebrew noun מָגוֹר (magor) in the sense of “temporary abode,” and see this as a reference to the psalmist’s status as a resident alien (see v. 19). But the noun can refer to a dwelling place in general (see Ps 55:15).

3 tn The cohortative verbal form expresses the psalmist’s resolve to obey the law.
