Psalms 22:27-28


22:27 Let all the people of the earth acknowledge the Lord and turn to him! 1 

Let all the nations 2  worship you! 3 

22:28 For the Lord is king 4 

and rules over the nations.

1 tn Heb “may all the ends of the earth remember and turn to the Lord.” The prefixed verbal forms in v. 27 are understood as jussives (cf. NEB). Another option (cf. NIV, NRSV) is to take the forms as imperfects and translate, “all the people of the earth will acknowledge and turn…and worship.” See vv. 29-32.

2 tn Heb “families of the nations.”

3 tn Heb “before you.”

4 tn Heb “for to the Lord [is] dominion.”
