Psalms 72:3

Context

72:3 The mountains will bring news of peace to the people,

and the hills will announce justice. 1 

Psalms 72:7

Context

72:7 During his days the godly will flourish; 2 

peace will prevail as long as the moon remains in the sky. 3 

1 tn Heb “[the] mountains will bear peace to the people, and [the] hills with justice.” The personified mountains and hills probably represent messengers who will sweep over the land announcing the king’s just decrees and policies. See Isa 52:7 and C. A. Briggs and E. G. Briggs, Psalms (ICC), 2:133.

2 tn Heb “sprout up,” like crops. This verse continues the metaphor of rain utilized in v. 6.

3 tn Heb “and [there will be an] abundance of peace until there is no more moon.”
