Psalms 62:4

Context

62:4 They 1  spend all their time planning how to bring him 2  down. 3 

They love to use deceit; 4 

they pronounce blessings with their mouths,

but inwardly they utter curses. 5  (Selah)

1 tn That is, the psalmist’s enemies addressed in the previous verse.

2 tn That is, the generic “man” referred to in the previous verse.

3 tn Heb “only from his lofty place [or perhaps, “dignity”] they plan to drive [him] away.”

4 tn Heb “they delight [in] a lie.”

5 sn The enemies use deceit to bring down their victim. They make him think they are his friends by pronouncing blessings upon him, but inwardly they desire his demise.
