Psalms 9:19-20

Context

9:19 Rise up, Lord! 1 

Don’t let men be defiant! 2 

May the nations be judged in your presence!

9:20 Terrify them, Lord! 3 

Let the nations know they are mere mortals! 4  (Selah)

1 sn Rise up, Lord! …May the nations be judged. The psalm concludes with a petition that the Lord would continue to exercise his justice as he has done in the recent crisis.

2 tn Or “prevail.”

3 tn Heb “place, Lord, terror with regard to them.” The Hebrew term מוֹרָה (morah, “terror”) is an alternative form of מוֹרָא (mora’; a reading that appears in some mss and finds support in several ancient textual witnesses).

4 tn Heb “let the nations know they [are] man[kind]”; i.e., mere human beings (as opposed to God).
