Psalms 59:7


59:7 Look, they hurl insults at me

and openly threaten to kill me, 1 

for they say, 2 

“Who hears?”

Psalms 59:12


59:12 They speak sinful words. 3 

So let them be trapped by their own pride

and by the curses and lies they speak!

1 tn Heb “look, they gush forth with their mouth, swords [are] in their lips.”

2 tn The words “for they say” are supplied in the translation for clarification. The following question (“Who hears?”) is spoken by the psalmist’s enemies, who are confident that no one else can hear their threats against the psalmist. They are aggressive because they feel the psalmist is vulnerable and has no one to help him.

3 tn Heb “the sin of their mouth [is] the word of their lips.”
