Psalms 31:15-18

Context

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 

31:18 May lying lips be silenced –

lips 4  that speak defiantly against the innocent 5 

with arrogance and contempt!

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.”

4 tn Heb “the [ones which].”

5 tn Or “godly.”
