Context
NETBible

I am like a foreigner in this land. 1  Do not hide your commands from me!

XREF

Ge 47:9; 1Ch 29:15; Job 39:17; Ps 39:12; Ps 119:10; Isa 63:17; Lu 9:45; Lu 24:45; 2Co 5:6; Heb 11:13-16; 1Pe 2:11

NET © Notes

tn Heb “I am a resident alien in the land.” Resident aliens were especially vulnerable and in need of help. They needed to know the social and legal customs of the land to avoid getting into trouble. The translation (note the addition of “like”) assumes the psalmist is speaking metaphorically, not literally.
