Psalms 72:8

Context

72:8 May he rule 1  from sea to sea, 2 

and from the Euphrates River 3  to the ends of the earth!

Psalms 72:19

Context

72:19 His glorious name deserves praise 4  forevermore!

May his majestic splendor 5  fill the whole earth!

We agree! We agree! 6 

1 tn The prefixed verbal form is a (shortened) jussive form, indicating this is a prayer of blessing.

2 sn From sea to sea. This may mean from the Mediterranean Sea in the west to the Dead Sea in the east. See Amos 8:12. The language of this and the following line also appears in Zech 9:10.

3 tn Heb “the river,” a reference to the Euphrates.

4 tn Heb “[be] blessed.”

5 tn Or “glory.”

6 tn Heb “surely and surely” (אָמֵן וְאָמֵן [’amen vÿamen], i.e., “Amen and amen”). This is probably a congregational response of agreement to the immediately preceding statement about the propriety of praising God.
