Psalms 47:4

Context

47:4 He picked out for us a special land 1 

to be a source of pride for 2  Jacob, 3  whom he loves. 4  (Selah)

1 tn Heb “he chose for us our inheritance.” The prefixed verbal form is understood as a preterite (see “subdued” in v. 3).

2 tn Heb “the pride of.” The phrase is appositional to “our inheritance,” indicating that the land is here described as a source of pride to God’s people.

3 tn That is, Israel.

4 sn Jacob whom he loves. The Lord’s covenantal devotion to his people is in view.
