Psalms 77:7-9

Context

77:7 I asked, 1  “Will the Lord reject me forever?

Will he never again show me his favor?

77:8 Has his loyal love disappeared forever?

Has his promise 2  failed forever?

77:9 Has God forgotten to be merciful?

Has his anger stifled his compassion?”

1 tn As in vv. 4 and 6a, the words of vv. 7-9 are understood as a quotation of what the psalmist said earlier. Therefore the words “I asked” are supplied in the translation for clarification.

2 tn Heb “word,” which may refer here to God’s word of promise (note the reference to “loyal love” in the preceding line).
