Psalms 97:11

Context

97:11 The godly bask in the light;

the morally upright experience joy. 1 

Psalms 119:130

Context

119:130 Your instructions are a doorway through which light shines. 2 

They give 3  insight to the untrained. 4 

1 tn Heb “Light is planted for the godly, and for the upright of heart joy.” The translation assumes an emendation of זָרַע (zara’, “planted”) to זָרַח (zara’, “shines”) which collocates more naturally with “light.” “Light” here symbolizes the joy (note the following line) that accompanies deliverance and the outpouring of divine favor.

2 tn Heb “the doorway of your words gives light.” God’s “words” refer here to the instructions in his law (see vv. 9, 57).

3 tn Heb “it [i.e., the doorway] gives.”

4 tn Or “the [morally] naive,” that is, the one who is young and still in the process of learning right from wrong and distinguishing wisdom from folly. See Pss 19:7; 116:6.
