Psalms 140:8


140:8 O Lord, do not let the wicked have their way! 1 

Do not allow their 2  plan to succeed when they attack! 3  (Selah)

1 tn Heb “do not grant the desires of the wicked.”

2 tn Heb “his.” The singular is used in a representative sense (see v. 1).

3 tn Heb “his plot do not promote, they rise up.” The translation understands the final verb as being an unmarked temporal clause. Another option is to revocalize the verb as a Hiphil and take the verb with the next verse, “those who surround me lift up [their] head,” which could refer to their proud attitude as they anticipate victory (see Ps 27:6).
