Psalms 92:9-11

Context

92:9 Indeed, 1  look at your enemies, O Lord!

Indeed, 2  look at how your enemies perish!

All the evildoers are scattered!

92:10 You exalt my horn like that of a wild ox. 3 

I am covered 4  with fresh oil.

92:11 I gloat in triumph over those who tried to ambush me; 5 

I hear the defeated cries of the evil foes who attacked me. 6 

1 tn Or “for.”

2 tn Or “for.”

3 sn The horn of the wild ox is frequently a metaphor for military strength; the idiom “to exalt/lift up the horn” signifies military victory (see 1 Sam 2:10; Pss 75:10; 89:24; Lam 2:17).

4 tn The Hebrew verb בָּלַל (balal) usually has the nuance “to mix.” Here it seems to mean “to smear” or “to anoint.” Some emend the form to בַּלֹּתַנִי (ballotaniy; a second person form of the verb with a first person suffix) and read, “you anoint me.”

5 tn Heb “my eye gazes upon those who watch me [with evil intent].” See also Pss 5:8; 27:11; 56:2. The form שׁוּרָי (shuray) should be emended to שׁוֹרְרָי (shorÿray).

6 tn Heb “those who rise up against me, evil [foes], my ears hear.”
