147:10 He is not enamored with the strength of a horse,
nor is he impressed by the warrior’s strong legs. 1
149:4 For the Lord takes delight in his people;
he exalts the oppressed by delivering them. 2
1 tn Heb “he does not desire the strength of the horse, he does not take delight in the legs of the man.” Here “the horse” refers to the war horse used by ancient Near Eastern chariot forces, and “the man” refers to the warrior whose muscular legs epitomize his strength.
2 tn Heb “he honors the oppressed [with] deliverance.”
