Psalms 95:6-7

Context

95:6 Come! Let’s bow down and worship! 1 

Let’s kneel before the Lord, our creator!

we are the people of his pasture,

the sheep he owns. 2 

Today, if only you would obey him! 3 

Psalms 95:11

Context

95:11 So I made a vow in my anger,

‘They will never enter into the resting place I had set aside for them.’” 4 

1 tn Heb “kneel down.”

2 tn Heb “of his hand.”

3 tn Heb “if only you would listen to his voice.” The Hebrew particle אִם (’im, “if”) and following prefixed verbal form here express a wish (cf. Ps 81:8). Note that the apodosis (the “then” clause of the conditional sentence) is suppressed.

4 tn Heb “my resting place.” The promised land of Canaan is here viewed metaphorically as a place of rest for God’s people, who are compared to sheep (see v. 7).
