Context

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

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

Psalms 77:8

Context

77:8 Has his loyal love disappeared forever?

Has his promise 2  failed forever?

Psalms 145:13

Context

145:13 Your kingdom is an eternal kingdom, 3 

and your dominion endures through all generations.

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 Heb “word,” which may refer here to God’s word of promise (note the reference to “loyal love” in the preceding line).

3 tn Heb “a kingdom of all ages.”
