Psalms 65:12

65:12 The pastures in the wilderness glisten with moisture,

and the hills are clothed with joy.

Psalms 72:3

72:3 The mountains will bring news of peace to the people,

and the hills will announce justice.

Psalms 114:4

114:4 The mountains skipped like rams,

the hills like lambs.

Psalms 114:6

114:6 Why do you skip like rams, O mountains,

like lambs, O hills?


tn Heb “drip.”

tn That is, with rich vegetation that brings joy to those who see it.

tn Heb “[the] mountains will bear peace to the people, and [the] hills with justice.” The personified mountains and hills probably represent messengers who will sweep over the land announcing the king’s just decrees and policies. See Isa 52:7 and C. A. Briggs and E. G. Briggs, Psalms (ICC), 2:133.

sn The mountains skipped like rams, the hills like lambs. This may recall the theophany at Sinai when the mountain shook before God’s presence (Exod 19:18).
