Psalms 89:19

Context

89:19 Then you 1  spoke through a vision to your faithful followers 2  and said:

“I have energized a warrior; 3 

I have raised up a young man 4  from the people.

Psalms 89:24

Context

89:24 He will experience my faithfulness and loyal love, 5 

and by my name he will win victories. 6 

1 tn The pronoun “you” refers to the Lord, who is addressed here. The quotation that follows further develops the announcement of vv. 3-4.

2 tc Many medieval mss read the singular here, “your faithful follower.” In this case the statement refers directly to Nathan’s oracle to David (see 2 Sam 7:17).

3 tn Heb “I have placed help upon a warrior.”

4 tn Or perhaps “a chosen one.”

5 tn Heb “and my faithfulness and my loyal love [will be] with him.”

6 tn Heb “and by my name his horn will be lifted up.” The horn of an ox underlies the metaphor (see Deut 33:17; 1 Kgs 22:11; Ps 92:10). The horn of the wild ox is frequently a metaphor for military strength; the idiom “exalt/lift up the horn” signifies military victory (see 1 Sam 2:10; Pss 75:10; 92:10; Lam 2:17).
