Psalms 119:81-83

Context

כ (Kaf)

119:81 I desperately long for 1  your deliverance.

I find hope in your word.

119:82 My eyes grow tired as I wait for your promise to be fulfilled. 2 

I say, 3  “When will you comfort me?”

119:83 For 4  I am like a wineskin 5  dried up in smoke. 6 

I do not forget your statutes.

1 tn Heb “my soul pines for.” See Ps 84:2.

2 tn Heb “my eyes fail for your word.” The psalmist has intently kept his eyes open, looking for God to intervene, but now his eyes are watery and bloodshot, impairing his vision. See Ps 69:3.

3 tn Heb “saying.”

4 tn Or “even though.”

5 tn The Hebrew word נֹאד (nod, “leather container”) refers to a container made from animal skin which is used to hold wine or milk (see Josh 9:4, 13; Judg 4:19; 1 Sam 16:20).

6 tn Heb “in the smoke.”
