1 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.

2 tn Or “cut off, removed.”

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

4 tn Heb “and they will take delight in (see v. 4) abundance of peace.”

5 tn Heb “the Lord knows the days of the innocent ones.” He “knows” their days in the sense that he is intimately aware of and involved in their daily struggles. He meets their needs and sustains them.

6 tn Heb “and their inheritance is forever.”

7 tn Or “Do good!” The imperatives are singular (see v. 1).

8 tn Heb “and dwell permanently.” The imperative with vav (ו) is best taken here as a result clause after the preceding imperatives.
