Psalms 27:9

27:9 Do not reject me!

Do not push your servant away in anger!

You are my deliverer!

Do not forsake or abandon me,

O God who vindicates me!

Psalms 88:14

88:14 O Lord, why do you reject me,

and pay no attention to me?


tn Heb “do not hide your face from me.” The idiom “hide the face” can mean “ignore” (see Pss 10:11; 13:1; 51:9) or carry the stronger idea of “reject” (see Pss 30:7; 88:14).

tn Or “[source of] help.”

tn Heb “[why] do you hide your face from me?”
