Psalms 78:54-55

Context

78:54 He brought them to the border of his holy land,

to this mountainous land 1  which his right hand 2  acquired.

78:55 He drove the nations out from before them;

he assigned them their tribal allotments 3 

and allowed the tribes of Israel to settle down. 4 

1 tn Heb “this mountain.” The whole land of Canaan seems to be referred to here. In Exod 15:17 the promised land is called the “mountain of your [i.e., God’s] inheritance.”

2 tn The “right hand” here symbolizes God’s military strength (see v. 55).

3 tn Heb “he caused to fall [to] them with a measuring line an inheritance.”

4 tn Heb “and caused the tribes of Israel to settle down in their tents.”
