Psalms 61:5

Context

61:5 For you, O God, hear my vows;

you grant me the reward that belongs to your loyal followers. 1 

Psalms 61:8

Context

61:8 Then I will sing praises to your name continually, 2 

as I fulfill 3  my vows day after day.

1 tn Heb “you grant the inheritance of those who fear your name.” “Inheritance” is normally used of land which is granted as an inheritance; here it refers metaphorically to the blessings granted God’s loyal followers. To “fear” God’s name means to have a healthy respect for his revealed reputation which in turn motivates one to obey God’s commands (see Ps 86:11).

2 tn Or “forever.”

3 tn Or perhaps, “and thereby fulfill.” The preposition with the infinitive construct here indicates an accompanying circumstance.
