Psalms 17:8

Context

17:8 Protect me as you would protect the pupil of your eye! 1 

Hide me in the shadow of your wings! 2 

Psalms 32:7

Context

32:7 You are my hiding place;

you protect me from distress.

You surround me with shouts of joy from those celebrating deliverance. 3  (Selah)

1 tc Heb “Protect me like the pupil, a daughter of an eye.” The noun בַּת (bat, “daughter”) should probably be emended to בָּבַת (bavat, “pupil”). See Zech 2:12 HT (2:8 ET) and HALOT 107 s.v. *בָּבָה.

2 sn Your wings. The metaphor compares God to a protective mother bird.

3 tn Heb “[with] shouts of joy of deliverance you surround me.”
