Psalms 66:18-20

66:18 If I had harbored sin in my heart,

the Lord would not have listened.

66:19 However, God heard;

he listened to my prayer.

66:20 God deserves praise,

for he did not reject my prayer

or abandon his love for me!

tn Heb “sin if I had seen in my heart.”

tn Heb “blessed [be] God.”

tn Or “who.” In a blessing formula after בָּרוּךְ (barukh, “blessed be”) the form אֲשֶׁר (’asher), whether taken as a relative pronoun or causal particle, introduces the basis for the blessing/praise.

tn Heb “did not turn aside my prayer and his loyal love with me.”
