Psalms 22:9-10


22:9 Yes, you are the one who brought me out 1  from the womb

and made me feel secure on my mother’s breasts.

22:10 I have been dependent on you since birth; 2 

from the time I came out of my mother’s womb you have been my God. 3 

1 tn Or “the one who pulled me.” The verb is derived from either גָחָה (gakhah; see HALOT 187 s.v. גחה) or גִּיחַ (giyakh; see BDB 161 s.v. גִּיחַ) and seems to carry the nuance “burst forth” or “pull out.”

2 tn Heb “upon you I was cast from [the] womb.”

3 tn Heb “from the womb of my mother you [have been] my God.”

sn Despite the enemies’ taunts, the psalmist is certain of his relationship with God, which began from the time of his birth (from the time I came out of my mother’s womb).
