Psalms 90:16-17

Context

90:16 May your servants see your work! 1 

May their sons see your majesty! 2 

90:17 May our sovereign God extend his favor to us! 3 

Make our endeavors successful!

Yes, make them successful! 4 

1 tn Heb “may your work be revealed to your servants.” In this context (note v. 17) the verb form יֵרָאֶה (yeraeh) is best understood as an unshortened jussive (see Gen 1:9; Isa 47:3).

2 tn Heb “and your majesty to their sons.” The verb “be revealed” is understood by ellipsis in the second line.

3 tn Heb “and may the delight of the Master, our God, be on us.” The Hebrew term נֹעַם (noam, “delight”) is used in Ps 27:4 of the Lord’s “beauty,” but here it seems to refer to his favor (see BDB 653 s.v.) or kindness (HALOT 706 s.v.).

4 tn Heb “and the work of our hands establish over us, and the work of our hands, establish it.”
