Psalms 89:5


89:5 O Lord, the heavens 1  praise your amazing deeds,

as well as your faithfulness in the angelic assembly. 2 

Psalms 89:7


89:7 a God who is honored 3  in the great angelic assembly, 4 

and more awesome than 5  all who surround him?

1 tn As the following context makes clear, the personified “heavens” here stand by metonymy for the angelic beings that surround God’s heavenly throne.

2 tn Heb “in the assembly of the holy ones.” The phrase “holy ones” sometimes refers to God’s people (Ps 34:9) or to their priestly leaders (2 Chr 35:3), but here it refers to God’s heavenly assembly and the angels that surround his throne (see vv. 6-7).

3 tn Heb “feared.”

4 tn Heb “in the great assembly of the holy ones.”

5 tn Or perhaps “feared by.”
