Psalms 99:3-4

Context

99:3 Let them praise your great and awesome name!

He 1  is holy!

99:4 The king is strong;

he loves justice. 2 

You ensure that legal decisions will be made fairly; 3 

you promote justice and equity in Jacob.

1 tn The pronoun refers to the Lord himself (see vv. 5, 9).

2 tn Heb “and strength, a king, justice he loves.” The syntax of the Hebrew text is difficult here. The translation assumes that two affirmations are made about the king, the Lord (see v. 1, and Ps 98:6). The noun עֹז (’oz, “strength”) should probably be revocalized as the adjective עַז (’az, “strong”).

3 tn Heb “you establish fairness.”
