Psalms 68:15

Context

68:15 The mountain of Bashan 1  is a towering mountain; 2 

the mountain of Bashan is a mountain with many peaks. 3 

1 sn The mountain of Bashan probably refers to Mount Hermon.

2 tn Heb “a mountain of God.” The divine name is probably used here in a superlative sense to depict a very high mountain (“a mountain fit for God,” as it were). Cf. NIV “are majestic mountains”; NRSV “O mighty mountain.”

3 tn The meaning of the Hebrew term, which appears only here in the OT, is uncertain. HALOT 174 s.v. גַּבְנוֹן suggests “many-peaked,” while BDB 148 s.v. גַּבְנִן suggests “rounded summit.”
