35:26 May those who want to harm me be totally embarrassed and ashamed! 2 

May those who arrogantly taunt me be covered with shame and humiliation! 3

1 tn The four prefixed verbal forms in this verse are understood as jussives. The psalmist is calling judgment down on his enemies. See also the distinct jussive form in v. 6.

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

3 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.

4 tn The prefixed verbal forms in v. 27a are understood as jussives (see vv. 24b-26).

5 tn The prefixed verbal form is taken as a jussive, “may the Lord be magnified [in praise].” Another option is to take the verb as an imperfect, “the Lord is great.”

6 tn Heb “the one who desires the peace of his servant.”
