Psalms 35:26


35:26 May those who want to harm me be totally embarrassed and ashamed! 1 

May those who arrogantly taunt me be covered with shame and humiliation! 2 

Psalms 55:13


55:13 But it is you, 3  a man like me, 4 

my close friend in whom I confided. 5 

1 tn Heb “may they be embarrassed and ashamed together, the ones who rejoice over my harm.”

2 tn Heb “may they be clothed with shame and humiliation, the ones who magnify [themselves] against me.” The prefixed verbal forms in v. 26 are understood as jussives (see vv. 24b-25, where the negative particle אַל (’al) appears before the prefixed verbal forms, indicating they are jussives). The psalmist is calling down judgment on his enemies.

3 sn It is you. The psalmist addresses the apparent ringleader of the opposition, an individual who was once his friend.

4 tn Heb “a man according to my value,” i.e., “a person such as I.”

5 tn Heb “my close friend, one known by me.”
