Psalms 119:44-46

Context

119:44 Then I will keep 1  your law continually

now and for all time. 2 

119:45 I will be secure, 3 

for I seek your precepts.

119:46 I will speak 4  about your regulations before kings

and not be ashamed.

1 tn The cohortative verbal form with vav (ו) conjunctive indicates purpose/result after the negated jussive (see v. 43).

2 tn Or “forever and ever.”

3 tn Heb “and I will walk about in a wide place.” The cohortative with prefixed vav (ו) conjunctive gives a further consequence of the anticipated positive divine response (see vv. 43-44). Another option is to take the cohortative as expressing the psalmist’s request. In this case one could translate, “and please give me security.”

4 tn The series of four cohortatives with prefixed vav (ו) conjunctive in vv. 46-48 list further consequences of the anticipated positive divine response to the request made in v. 43.
