NET © Notes

tn Or “just.” Perhaps the idea is that they impart a knowledge of what is just and right.

tn Heb “[they] make happy [the] heart.” Perhaps the point is that they bring a sense of joyful satisfaction to the one who knows and keeps them, for those who obey God’s law are richly rewarded. See v. 11b.

tn Heb “command.” The singular here refers to the law as a whole.

tn Because they reflect God’s character, his commands provide a code of moral and ethical purity.

tn Heb [they] enlighten [the] eyes.
