Psalms 34:2-4

Context

34:2 I will boast 1  in the Lord;

let the oppressed hear and rejoice! 2 

34:3 Magnify the Lord with me!

Let’s praise 3  his name together!

34:4 I sought the Lord’s help 4  and he answered me;

he delivered me from all my fears.

1 tn Heb “my soul will boast”; or better, “let my soul boast.” Following the cohortative form in v. 1, it is likely that the prefixed verbal form here is jussive.

2 tn The two prefixed verbal forms in this verse are best taken as jussives, for the psalmist is calling his audience to worship (see v. 3).

3 tn Or “exalt.”

4 tn Heb “I sought the Lord.”
