Psalms 9:7-8

Context

9:7 But the Lord 1  rules 2  forever;

he reigns in a just manner. 3 

9:8 He judges the world fairly;

he makes just legal decisions for the nations. 4 

1 tn The construction vav (ו) + subject highlights the contrast between the exalted Lord and his defeated foes (see v. 6).

2 tn Heb “sits” (i.e., enthroned, see v. 4). The imperfect verbal form highlights the generalization.

3 tn Heb “he establishes for justice his throne.”

4 tn Heb “the peoples.” The imperfect verbal forms in v. 8 either describe God’s typical, characteristic behavior, or anticipate a future judgment of worldwide proportions (“will judge…”).
