Psalms 22:14

Context

22:14 My strength drains away like water; 1 

all my bones are dislocated;

my heart 2  is like wax;

it melts away inside me.

Psalms 40:9

Context

40:9 I have told the great assembly 3  about your justice. 4 

Look! I spare no words! 5 

O Lord, you know this is true.

1 tn Heb “like water I am poured out.”

2 sn The heart is viewed here as the seat of the psalmist’s strength and courage.

3 sn The great assembly is also mentioned in Pss 22:25 and 35:18.

4 tn Heb “I proclaim justice in the great assembly.” Though “justice” appears without a pronoun here, the Lord’s just acts are in view (see v. 10). His “justice” (צֶדֶק, tsedeq) is here the deliverance that originates in his justice; he protects and vindicates the one whose cause is just.

5 tn Heb “Look! My lips I do not restrain.”
