NET © Notes

tn Heb “do not kill them, lest my people forget.”

sn My people might forget the lesson. Swift, sudden destruction might be quickly forgotten. The psalmist wants God’s judgment to be prolonged so that it might be a continual reminder of divine justice.

tn Heb “make them roam around by your strength and bring them down, O our shield, the Lord.”
