Psalms 102:18-22

Context

102:18 The account of his intervention 1  will be recorded for future generations;

people yet to be born will praise the Lord.

102:19 For he will look down from his sanctuary above; 2 

from heaven the Lord will look toward earth, 3 

102:20 in order to hear the painful cries of the prisoners,

and to set free those condemned to die, 4 

102:21 so they may proclaim the name of the Lord in Zion,

and praise him 5  in Jerusalem, 6 

102:22 when the nations gather together,

and the kingdoms pay tribute to the Lord. 7 

1 tn The Hebrew text has simply “this,” referring to the anticipated divine intervention on behalf of Zion (vv. 13, 16-17). The referent has been specified in the translation for clarity.

2 tn Heb “from the height of his sanctuary.”

3 tn The perfect verbal forms in v. 19 are functioning as future perfects, indicating future actions that will precede the future developments described in v. 18.

4 tn Heb “the sons of death.” The phrase “sons of death” (see also Ps 79:11) is idiomatic for those condemned to die.

5 tn Heb “his praise.”

7 tn “and the kingdoms to serve the Lord.”
