Psalms 73:16-17

Context

73:16 When I tried to make sense of this,

it was troubling to me. 1 

73:17 Then I entered the precincts of God’s temple, 2 

and understood the destiny of the wicked. 3 

1 tn Heb “and [when] I pondered to understand this, troubling it [was] in my eyes.”

2 tn The plural of the term מִקְדָּשׁ (miqdash) probably refers to the temple precincts (see Ps 68:35; Jer 51:51).

3 tn Heb “I discerned their end.” At the temple the psalmist perhaps received an oracle of deliverance announcing his vindication and the demise of the wicked (see Ps 12) or heard songs of confidence (for example, Ps 11), wisdom psalms (for example, Pss 1, 37), and hymns (for example, Ps 112) that describe the eventual downfall of the proud and wealthy.
