1 sn Psalm 21. The psalmist praises the Lord for the way he protects and blesses the Davidic king.

2 tn Heb “in your strength.” The translation interprets the pronominal suffix as subjective, rather than merely descriptive (or attributive).

3 tn Heb “and in your deliverance, how greatly he rejoices.”

4 tn Heb “in your strength,” but English idiom does not require the pronoun.

sn The psalm concludes with a petition to the Lord, asking him to continue to intervene in strength for the king and nation.

5 tn Heb “sing praise.”
