Psalms 69:9-10


69:9 Certainly 1  zeal for 2  your house 3  consumes me;

I endure the insults of those who insult you. 4 

69:10 I weep and refrain from eating food, 5 

which causes others to insult me. 6

2 tn Or “devotion to.”

3 sn God’s house, the temple, here represents by metonymy God himself.

4 tn Heb “the insults of those who insult you fall upon me.”
