Psalms 147:11


147:11 The Lord takes delight in his faithful followers, 1 

and in those who wait for his loyal love.

Proverbs 14:26


14:26 In the fear of the Lord one has 2  strong confidence, 3 

and it will be a refuge 4  for his children.

1 tn Heb “those who fear him.”

2 tn Heb “In the fear of the Lord [is] confidence of strength.” The phrase “one has” does not appear in the Hebrew but is supplied in the translation for the sake of smoothness.

3 tn Heb “confidence of strength.” This construct phrase features an attributive genitive: “strong confidence” (so most English versions; NIV “a secure fortress”).

4 sn The fear of the Lord will not only provide security for the parent but will also be a refuge for children. The line recalls Exod 20:5-6 where children will reap the benefits of the righteous parents. The line could also be read as “he [= God] will be a refuge for the children.”
