Psalms 62:2


62:2 He alone is my protector 1  and deliverer.

He is my refuge; 2  I will not be upended. 3 

Psalms 62:7


62:7 God delivers me and exalts me;

God is my strong protector and my shelter. 4 

1 tn Heb “my high rocky summit.”

2 tn Or “my elevated place” (see Ps 18:2).

3 tn The Hebrew text adds רַבָּה (rabbah, “greatly”) at the end of the line. It is unusual for this adverb to follow a negated verb. Some see this as qualifying the assertion to some degree, but this would water down the affirmation too much (see v. 6b, where the adverb is omitted). If the adverb has a qualifying function, it would suggest that the psalmist might be upended, though not severely. This is inconsistent with the confident mood of the psalm. The adverb probably has an emphatic force here, “I will not be greatly upended” meaning “I will not be annihilated.”

4 tn Heb “upon God [is] my deliverance and my glory, the high rocky summit of my strength, my shelter [is] in God.”
