Psalms 75:2-3

Context

75:2 God says, 1 

“At the appointed times, 2 

I judge 3  fairly.

75:3 When the earth and all its inhabitants dissolve in fear, 4 

I make its pillars secure.” 5  (Selah)

1 tn The words “God says” are not in the Hebrew text, but are supplied in the translation to clarify that God speaks in vv. 2-3.

2 tn Heb “when I take an appointed time.”

3 tn Heb “I, [in] fairness, I judge.” The statement is understood in a generalizing sense; God typically executes fair judgment as he governs the world. One could take this as referring to an anticipated (future) judgment, “I will judge.”

4 tn Heb “melt.”

5 tn The statement is understood in a generalizing sense; God typically prevents the world from being overrun by chaos. One could take this as referring to an anticipated event, “I will make its pillars secure.”
