Psalms 40:9-10

Context

40:9 I have told the great assembly 1  about your justice. 2 

Look! I spare no words! 3 

O Lord, you know this is true.

40:10 I have not failed to tell about your justice; 4 

I spoke about your reliability and deliverance;

I have not neglected to tell the great assembly about your loyal love and faithfulness. 5 

1 sn The great assembly is also mentioned in Pss 22:25 and 35:18.

2 tn Heb “I proclaim justice in the great assembly.” Though “justice” appears without a pronoun here, the Lord’s just acts are in view (see v. 10). His “justice” (צֶדֶק, tsedeq) is here the deliverance that originates in his justice; he protects and vindicates the one whose cause is just.

3 tn Heb “Look! My lips I do not restrain.”

4 tn Heb “your justice I have not hidden in the midst of my heart.”

5 tn Heb “I have not hidden your loyal love and reliability.”
