Psalms 63:7

Context

63:7 For you are my deliverer; 5 

under your wings 6  I rejoice.

1 tn Or “valuable.”

2 tn Heb “and the sons of man in the shadow of your wings find shelter.” The preservation of physical life is in view, as the next verse makes clear.

3 tn Heb “I will live as a resident alien in your tent permanently.” The cohortative is understood here as indicating resolve. Another option is to take it as expressing a request, “please let me live” (cf. NASB, NRSV).

4 sn I will find shelter in the protection of your wings. The metaphor compares God to a protective mother bird.

5 tn Or “[source of] help.”

6 tn Heb “in the shadow of your wings.”
