Psalms 90:6-7

Context

90:6 in the morning it glistens 1  and sprouts up;

at evening time it withers 2  and dries up.

90:7 Yes, 3  we are consumed by your anger;

we are terrified by your wrath.

1 tn Or “flourishes.” The verb is used of a crown shining in Ps 132:18. Perhaps here in Ps 90:6 it refers to the glistening of the grass in the morning dew.

2 tn The Polel form of this verb occurs only here. Perhaps the form should be emended to a Qal (which necessitates eliminating the final lamed [ל] as dittographic). See Ps 37:2.

3 tn Or “for.”
