Psalms 25:3

Context

25:3 Certainly none who rely on you will be humiliated.

Those who deal in treachery will be thwarted 1  and humiliated.

Psalms 25:21

Context

25:21 May integrity and godliness protect me,

for I rely on you!

1 tn Heb “those who deal in treachery in vain.” The adverb רֵיקָם (reqam, “in vain”) probably refers to the failure (or futility) of their efforts. Another option is to understand it as meaning “without cause” (cf. NIV “without excuse”; NRSV “wantonly treacherous”).
