Psalms 53:6

Context

53:6 I wish the deliverance 1  of Israel would come from Zion!

When God restores the well-being of his people, 2 

may Jacob rejoice, 3 

may Israel be happy! 4 

1 tn This refers metonymically to God, the one who lives in Zion and provides deliverance for Israel.

2 tn Heb “turns with a turning [toward] his people.” The Hebrew term שְׁבוּת (shÿvut) is apparently a cognate accusative of שׁוּב (shuv).

3 tn The verb form is jussive.

4 tn Because the parallel verb is jussive, this verb, which is ambiguous in form, should be taken as a jussive as well.
