Psalms 115:12-14


115:12 The Lord takes notice of us, 1  he will bless 2 

he will bless the family 3  of Israel,

he will bless the family of Aaron.

115:13 He will bless his loyal followers, 4 

both young and old. 5 

115:14 May he increase your numbers,

yours and your children’s! 6 

1 tn Or “remembers us.”

2 tn Another option is to translate the prefixed form of the verb “bless” in vv. 12-13 as a jussive, “may he bless” (see v. 14).

3 tn Heb “house.”

4 tn Heb “the fearers of the Lord.”

5 tn Heb “the small along with the great.” The translation assumes that “small” and “great” here refer to age (see 2 Chr 15:13). Another option is to translate “both the insignificant and the prominent” (see Job 3:19; cf. NEB “high and low alike”).

6 tn Heb “may he add to you, to you and your sons.” The prefixed verbal form is jussive, indicating this is a prayer.
