Psalms 69:36

Context

69:36 The descendants of his servants will inherit it,

and those who are loyal to him 1  will live in it. 2 

Psalms 119:132

Context

119:132 Turn toward me and extend mercy to me,

as you typically do to your loyal followers. 3 

1 tn Heb “the lovers of his name.” The phrase refers to those who are loyal to God (cf. v. 35). See Pss 5:11; 119:132; Isa 56:6.

2 sn Verses 35-36 appear to be an addition to the psalm from the time of the exile. The earlier lament reflects an individual’s situation, while these verses seem to reflect a communal application of it.

3 tn Heb “according to custom toward the lovers of your name.” The “lovers of” God’s “name” are the Lord’s loyal followers. See Pss 5:11; 69:36; Isa 56:6.
