Psalms 63:7


63:7 For you are my deliverer; 1 

under your wings 2  I rejoice.

Psalms 91:14


91:14 The Lord says, 3 

“Because he is devoted to me, I will deliver him;

I will protect him 4  because he is loyal to me. 5 

Psalms 5:11-12


5:11 But may all who take shelter 6  in you be happy! 7 

May they continually 8  shout for joy! 9 

Shelter them 10  so that those who are loyal to you 11  may rejoice! 12 

5:12 Certainly 13  you reward 14  the godly, 15  Lord.

Like a shield you protect 16  them 17  in your good favor. 18 

1 tn Or “[source of] help.”

2 tn Heb “in the shadow of your wings.”

3 tn The words “the Lord says” are supplied in the translation to clarify that the words which follow are the Lord’s oracle of assurance.

4 tn Or “make him secure” (Heb “set him on high”).

5 tn Heb “because he knows my name” (see Ps 9:10).

6 sn Take shelter. “Taking shelter” in the Lord is an idiom for seeking his protection. Seeking his protection presupposes and even demonstrates the subject’s loyalty to the Lord. In the psalms those who “take shelter” in the Lord are contrasted with the wicked and equated with those who love, fear and serve the Lord (Pss 5:11-12; 31:17-20; 34:21-22).

7 tn The prefixed verbal form is a jussive of wish or prayer. The psalmist calls on God to reward his faithful followers.

8 tn Or perhaps more hyperbolically, “forever.”

9 tn As in the preceding line, the prefixed verbal form is a jussive of wish or prayer.

10 tn Heb “put a cover over them.” The verb form is a Hiphil imperfect from סָכַךְ (sakhakh, “cover, shut off”). The imperfect expresses the psalmist’s wish or request.

11 tn Heb “the lovers of your name.” The phrase refers to those who are loyal to the Lord. See Pss 69:36; 119:132; Isa 56:6.

12 tn The vav (ו) with prefixed verbal form following the volitional “shelter them” indicates purpose or result (“so that those…may rejoice).

13 tn Or “For.”

14 tn Or “bless.” The imperfect verbal forms here and in the next line highlight how God characteristically rewards and protects the godly.

15 tn Or “innocent.” The singular form is used here in a collective or representative sense.

16 tn Heb “surround.” In 1 Sam 23:26 the verb describes how Saul and his men hemmed David in as they chased him.

17 tn Heb “him.” The singular form is used here in a collective or representative sense and is thus translated “them.”

18 tn Or “with favor” (cf. NRSV). There is no preposition before the noun in the Hebrew text, nor is there a pronoun attached. “Favor” here stands by metonymy for God’s defensive actions on behalf of the one whom he finds acceptable.
