Psalms 120:6-7


120:6 For too long I have had to reside

with those who hate 1  peace.

120:7 I am committed to peace, 2 

but when I speak, they want to make war. 3 

1 tn The singular participial form probably has a representative function here. The psalmist envisions the typical hater of peace who represents the entire category of such individuals.

2 tn Heb “I, peace.”

3 tn Heb “they [are] for war.”
