Psalms 31:14-17

Context

31:14 But I trust in you, O Lord!

I declare, “You are my God!”

31:15 You determine my destiny! 1 

Rescue me from the power of my enemies and those who chase me.

31:16 Smile 2  on your servant!

Deliver me because of your faithfulness!

31:17 O Lord, do not let me be humiliated,

for I call out to you!

May evil men be humiliated!

May they go wailing to the grave! 3 

1 tn Heb “in your hand [are] my times.”

2 tn Heb “cause your face to shine.”

3 tn The verb יִדְּמוּ (yiddÿmu) is understood as a form of דָּמַם (damam, “wail, lament”). Another option is to take the verb from דָּמַם (“be quiet”; see BDB 198-99 s.v. I דָּמַם), in which case one might translate, “May they lie silent in the grave.”
