Psalms 73:14

Context

73:14 I suffer all day long,

and am punished every morning.”

Psalms 73:26

Context

73:26 My flesh and my heart may grow weak, 1 

but God always 2  protects my heart and gives me stability. 3 

1 tn The Hebrew verb כָלָה (khalah, “to fail; to grow weak”) does not refer here to physical death per se, but to the physical weakness that sometimes precedes death (see Job 33:21; Pss 71:9; 143:7; Prov 5:11).

2 tn Or “forever.”

3 tn Heb “is the rocky summit of my heart and my portion.” The psalmist compares the Lord to a rocky summit where one could go for protection and to landed property, which was foundational to economic stability in ancient Israel.
