Psalms 38:4


38:4 For my sins overwhelm me; 1 

like a heavy load, they are too much for me to bear.

Psalms 69:25


69:25 May their camp become desolate,

their tents uninhabited! 2 

Psalms 78:49


78:49 His raging anger lashed out against them, 3 

He sent fury, rage, and trouble

as messengers who bring disaster. 4 

Psalms 102:11


102:11 My days are coming to an end, 5 

and I am withered like grass.

1 tn Heb “pass over my head.”

2 tn Heb “in their tents may there not be one who dwells.”

sn In Acts 1:20 Peter applies the language of this verse to Judas’ experience. By changing the pronouns from plural to singular, he is able to apply the ancient curse, pronounced against the psalmist’s enemies, to Judas in particular.

3 tn Heb “he sent against them the rage of his anger.” The phrase “rage of his anger” employs an appositional genitive. Synonyms are joined in a construct relationship to emphasize the single idea. For a detailed discussion of the grammatical point with numerous examples, see Y. Avishur, “Pairs of Synonymous Words in the Construct State (and in Appositional Hendiadys) in Biblical Hebrew,” Semitics 2 (1971): 17-81.

4 tn Heb “fury and indignation and trouble, a sending of messengers of disaster.”

5 tn Heb “my days [are] like an extended [or “lengthening”] shadow,” that is, like a late afternoon shadow made by the descending sun that will soon be swallowed up by complete darkness.
