You are my only hope! 1 

Psalms 55:18

Context

55:18 He will rescue 2  me and protect me from those who attack me, 3 

even though 4  they greatly outnumber me. 5 

1 tn Heb “my hope, for you it [is].”

2 tn The perfect verbal form is here used rhetorically to indicate that the action is certain to take place (the so-called perfect of certitude).

3 tn Heb “he will redeem in peace my life from [those who] draw near to me.”

4 tn Or “for.”

5 tn Heb “among many they are against me.” For other examples of the preposition עִמָּד (’immad) used in the sense of “at, against,” see HALOT 842 s.v.; BDB 767 s.v.; IBHS 219 §11.2.14b.
