Psalms 88:6


88:6 You place me in the lowest regions of the pit, 1 

in the dark places, in the watery depths.

Psalms 88:11-12


88:11 Is your loyal love proclaimed in the grave,

or your faithfulness in the place of the dead? 2 

88:12 Are your amazing deeds experienced 3  in the dark region, 4 

or your deliverance in the land of oblivion? 5

2 tn Heb “in Abaddon,” a name for Sheol. The noun is derived from a verbal root meaning “to perish,” “to die.”

3 tn Heb “known.”

4 tn Heb “darkness,” here a title for Sheol.

5 tn Heb “forgetfulness.” The noun, which occurs only here in the OT, is derived from a verbal root meaning “to forget.”

sn The rhetorical questions in vv. 10-12 expect the answer, “Of course not!”
