and he will answer your prayers. 2 

Psalms 37:9-10

Context

37:9 Wicked men 3  will be wiped out, 4 

but those who rely on the Lord are the ones who will possess the land. 5 

37:10 Evil men will soon disappear; 6 

you will stare at the spot where they once were, but they will be gone. 7 

1 tn Following the imperatives of v. 3 the prefixed verbal forms with vav (ו) in v. 4 indicate result. Faith and obedience (v. 3) will bring divine blessing (v. 4).

2 tn Or “and he will give you what you desire most.” Heb “and he will grant to you the requests of your heart.”

3 tn Heb “for evil men.” The conjunction כִּי (ki, “for”) relates to the exhortations in v. 8; there is no reason to be frustrated, for the evildoers will be punished in due time.

4 tn Or “cut off, removed.”

5 tn Heb “and those who wait on the Lord, they will possess the land.”

6 tn Heb “and yet, a little, there will be no wicked [one].”

7 tn Heb “and you will carefully look upon his place, but he will not be [there].” The singular is used here in a representative sense; the typical evildoer is in view.
