NET © Notes

tn Heb “loves.” The verb “loves” is here metonymic; the Lord’s commitment to principles of justice causes him to actively promote these principles as he governs the world. The active participle describes characteristic behavior.

tn The imperfect verbal form draws attention to this generalizing statement.

tn Or “protected forever.”

tn Or “offspring”; Heb “seed.”

tn Or “cut off”; or “removed.” The perfect verbal forms in v. 28b state general truths.
