37:30 The godly speak wise words
and promote justice. 1
37:31 The law of their God controls their thinking; 2
their 3 feet do not slip.
1 tn Heb “The mouth of the godly [one] utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks justice.” The singular form is used in a representative sense; the typical godly individual is in view. The imperfect verbal forms draw attention to the characteristic behavior of the godly.
2 tn Heb “the law of his God [is] in his heart.” The “heart” is here the seat of one’s thoughts and motives.
3 tn Heb “his.” The pronoun has been translated as plural to agree with the representative or typical “godly” in v. 30.
