Psalms 37:32-33

Context

37:32 Evil men set an ambush for the godly

and try to kill them. 1 

37:33 But the Lord does not surrender the godly,

or allow them to be condemned in a court of law. 2 

1 tn Heb “an evil [one] watches the godly [one] and seeks to kill him.” The singular forms are used in a representative sense; the typical evildoer and godly individual are in view. The active participles describe characteristic behavior.

2 tn Heb “the Lord does not abandon him into his hand or condemn him when he is judged.” The imperfects draw attention to the Lord’s characteristic behavior in this regard.
