NET © Notes

tn Or “take possession of.”

tn Heb “and their arm did not save them.” The “arm” here symbolizes military strength.

tn Heb “your right hand.” The Lord’s “right hand” here symbolizes his power to protect and deliver (see Pss 17:7; 20:6; 21:8).

tn Heb “your arm.”

tn Heb “light of your face.” The idiom “light of your face” probably refers to a smile (see Eccl 8:1), which in turn suggests favor and blessing (see Num 6:25; Pss 4:6; 31:16; 67:1; 80:3, 7, 19; 89:15; Dan 9:17).

tn Or “favorable toward.”
