1 tn Heb “their fat they close.” The Hebrew term חֵלֶב (khelev, “fat”) appears to stand by metonymy for their calloused hearts. They attack the psalmist without feeling any pity or remorse. Some propose emending the text to חֵלֶב לִבָּמוֹ (khelev libbamo, “fat of their heart[s]; cf. Ps 119:70, “their heart is insensitive like fat”). This assumes haplography of the לב (lamed-bet) consonantal sequence.
2 tn Heb “[with] their mouth they speak with arrogance.”
3 tn Heb “Be in front of his face.”
4 tn Or “bring him to his knees.”
5 tn Heb “rescue my life from the wicked [one] [by] your sword.”
