for what you dished out to us! 3 

1 tn Heb “Give to them according to their work, and according to the evil of their deeds. According to the work of their hands give to them. Return their due to them.” The highly repetitive style reflects the psalmist’s agitated emotional state and draws attention to his yearning for justice.

2 tn Heb “O devastated daughter of Babylon.” The psalmist dramatically anticipates Babylon’s demise.

3 tn Heb “O the happiness of the one who repays you your wage which you paid to us.”
