Psalms 35:7

Context

35:7 I did not harm them, but they hid a net to catch me

and dug a pit to trap me. 1 

Psalms 35:20

Context

35:20 For they do not try to make peace with others, 2 

but plan ways to deceive those who are unsuspecting. 3 

1 tc Heb “for without cause they hid for me a pit of their net, without cause they dug for my life.” It appears that the words “pit” and “net” have been transposed. “Net” goes with the verb “hid” in the first line (see v. 8, as well as Pss 9:15; 31:4), while “pit” goes with the verb “dug” in the second line (see Ps 7:15).

2 tn Heb “for they do not speak peace.”

3 tn Heb “but against the quiet ones of the land words of deceit they plan.” The imperfect verbal forms in v. 20 highlight their characteristic behavior.
