Psalms 119:105

Context

נ (Nun)

119:105 Your word 2  is a lamp to walk by,

and a light to illumine my path. 3 

Psalms 119:130

Context

119:130 Your instructions are a doorway through which light shines. 4 

They give 5  insight to the untrained. 6 

1 tn The plural form needs to be revocalized as a singular in order to agree with the preceding singular verb and the singular pronoun in the next line. The Lord’s “command” refers here to the law (see Ps 19:8).

2 tn Many medieval Hebrew mss read the plural (“words”).

3 tn Heb “[is] a lamp for my foot and a light for my path.”

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

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

6 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.
