Psalms 69:17-18

Context

69:17 Do not ignore 1  your servant,

for I am in trouble! Answer me right away! 2 

69:18 Come near me and redeem me! 3 

Because of my enemies, rescue me!

1 tn Heb “do not hide your face from.” The Hebrew idiom “hide the face” can (1) mean “ignore” (see Pss 10:11; 13:1; 51:9) or (2) carry the stronger idea of “reject” (see Pss 30:7; 88:14).

2 tn Or “quickly.”

3 tn Heb “come near my life and redeem it.” The verb “redeem” casts the Lord in the role of a leader who protects members of his extended family in times of need and crisis (see Ps 19:14).
