Psalms 80:9-11

Context

80:9 You cleared the ground for it; 1 

it took root, 2 

and filled the land.

80:10 The mountains were covered by its shadow,

the highest cedars 3  by its branches.

80:11 Its branches reached the Mediterranean Sea, 4 

and its shoots the Euphrates River. 5 

1 tn Heb “you cleared away before it.”

2 tn Heb “and it took root [with] its roots.”

3 tn Heb “cedars of God.” The divine name אֵל (’al, “God”) is here used in an idiomatic manner to indicate the superlative.

4 tn Heb “to [the] sea.” The “sea” refers here to the Mediterranean Sea.

5 tn Heb “to [the] river.” The “river” is the Euphrates River in Mesopotamia. Israel expanded both to the west and to the east.
