Psalms 145:16


145:16 You open your hand,

and fill every living thing with the food they desire. 1 

Psalms 104:28


104:28 You give food to them and they receive it;

you open your hand and they are filled with food. 2 

Psalms 103:5


103:5 who satisfies your life with good things, 3 

so your youth is renewed like an eagle’s. 4 

Psalms 90:14


90:14 Satisfy us in the morning 5  with your loyal love!

Then we will shout for joy and be happy 6  all our days!

1 tn Heb “[with what they] desire.”

2 tn Heb “they are satisfied [with] good.”

3 tc Heb “who satisfies with the good of your ornaments.” The text as it stands makes little, if any, sense. The translation assumes an emendation of עֶדְיֵךְ (’edekh, “your ornaments”) to עֹדֵכִי (’odekhiy, “your duration; your continuance”) that is, “your life” (see L. C. Allen, Psalms 101-150 [WBC], 18).

4 sn The expression your youth is renewed like an eagle’s may allude to the phenomenon of molting, whereby the eagle grows new feathers.

5 sn Morning is used metaphorically for a time of renewed joy after affliction (see Pss 30:5; 46:5; 49:14; 59:16; 143:8).

6 tn After the imperative (see the preceding line) the cohortatives with the prefixed conjunction indicate purpose/result.
