Psalms 6:6

Context

6:6 I am exhausted as I groan;

all night long I drench my bed in tears; 1 

my tears saturate the cushion beneath me. 2 

Psalms 41:3

Context

41:3 The Lord supports 3  him on his sickbed;

you completely heal him from his illness. 4 

1 tn Heb “I cause to swim through all the night my bed.”

2 tn Heb “with my tears my bed I flood/melt.”

3 tn The prefixed verbal form could be taken as jussive, continuing the prayer of v. 2, but the parallel line in v. 3b employs the perfect, suggesting that the psalmist is again speaking in the indicative mood (see v. 1b). The imperfect can be understood as future or as generalizing (see v. 1).

4 tn Heb “all his bed you turn in his illness.” The perfect is used here in a generalizing sense (see v. 1) or in a rhetorical manner to emphasize that the healing is as good as done.
