Psalms 125:5

Context

125:5 As for those who are bent on traveling a sinful path, 1 

may the Lord remove them, 2  along with those who behave wickedly! 3 

May Israel experience peace! 4 

1 tn Heb “and the ones making their paths twisted.” A sinful lifestyle is compared to a twisting, winding road.

2 tn Heb “lead them away.” The prefixed verbal form is understood as a jussive of prayer here (note the prayers directly before and after this). Another option is to translate, “the Lord will remove them” (cf. NIV, NRSV).

3 tn Heb “the workers of wickedness.”

4 tn Heb “peace [be] upon Israel.” The statement is understood as a prayer (see Ps 122:8 for a similar prayer for peace).
