Psalms 35:10

Context

35:10 With all my strength I will say, 1 

“O Lord, who can compare to you?

You rescue 2  the oppressed from those who try to overpower them; 3 

the oppressed and needy from those who try to rob them.” 4 

Psalms 37:14

Context

37:14 Evil men draw their swords

and prepare their bows,

to bring down 5  the oppressed and needy,

and to slaughter those who are godly. 6 

1 tn Heb “all my bones will say.”

2 tn Heb “[the one who] rescues.” The substantival participle in the Hebrew text characterizes God as one who typically rescues the oppressed.

3 tn Heb “from [the one who is] too strong for him.” The singular forms are used in a representative sense. The typical oppressed individual and typical oppressor are in view.

4 tn Heb “the oppressed [one] and needy [one] from [the one who] robs him.” As in the previous line, the singular forms are used in a representative sense.

5 tn Heb “to cause to fall.”

6 tn Heb “the upright in way,” i.e., those who lead godly lives.
