Psalms 89:30-32

Context

89:30 If his sons reject my law

and disobey my regulations,

89:31 if they break 1  my rules

and do not keep my commandments,

89:32 I will punish their rebellion by beating them with a club, 2 

their sin by inflicting them with bruises. 3 

1 tn Or “desecrate.”

2 tn Heb “I will punish with a club their rebellion.”

sn Despite the harsh image of beating…with a club, the language reflects a father-son relationship (see v. 30; 2 Sam 7:14). According to Proverbs, a שֵׁבֶט (shevet, “club”) was sometimes utilized to administer corporal punishment to rebellious children (see Prov 13:24; 22:15; 23:13-14; 29:15).

3 tn Heb “with blows their sin.”
