Psalms 31:21-22


31:21 The Lord deserves praise 1 

for he demonstrated his amazing faithfulness to me when I was besieged by enemies. 2 

31:22 I jumped to conclusions and said, 3 

“I am cut off from your presence!” 4 

But you heard my plea for mercy when I cried out to you for help.

1 tn Heb “blessed [be] the Lord.”

2 tn Heb “for he caused his faithfulness to be amazing to me in a besieged city.” The psalmist probably speaks figuratively here. He compares his crisis to being trapped in a besieged city, but the Lord answered his prayer for help. Verses 19-24 were apparently written after the Lord answered the prayer of vv. 1-18.

3 tn Heb “and I, I said in my haste.”

4 tn Heb “from before your eyes.”
