2 tn The prefixed verbal form appears to be an imperfect, not a jussive.

3 tn Heb “sons.”

4 tn The singular is representative. The typical needy individual here represents the entire group.

5 tn The singular is representative. The typical oppressed individual here represents the entire group.

6 tn The prefixed verb form is best understood as a defectively written imperfect (see Deut 7:16).

7 tn Or “redeem their lives.” 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 Pss 19:14; 69:18).

8 tn Heb “their blood will be precious in his eyes.”
