Psalms 37:9


37:9 Wicked men 1  will be wiped out, 2 

but those who rely on the Lord are the ones who will possess the land. 3 

Psalms 37:28


37:28 For the Lord promotes 4  justice,

and never abandons 5  his faithful followers.

They are permanently secure, 6 

but the children 7  of evil men are wiped out. 8 

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 “loves.” The verb “loves” is here metonymic; the Lord’s commitment to principles of justice causes him to actively promote these principles as he governs the world. The active participle describes characteristic behavior.

5 tn The imperfect verbal form draws attention to this generalizing statement.

6 tn Or “protected forever.”

7 tn Or “offspring”; Heb “seed.”

8 tn Or “cut off”; or “removed.” The perfect verbal forms in v. 28b state general truths.
