22:39 I wipe them out and beat them to death;
they cannot get up;
they fall at my feet.
you make my foes kneel before me. 2
I destroy those who hate me.
they cry out to the Lord, 6 but he does not answer them.
22:43 I grind them as fine as the dust of the ground;
I crush them and stomp on them like clay 7 in the streets.
1 tn Heb “you clothed me with strength for battle.”
2 tn Heb “you make those who rise against me kneel beneath me.”
4 tc The translation follows one medieval Hebrew
5 tn Heb “but there is no deliverer.”
6 tn The words “they cry out” are not in the Hebrew text. This reference to the psalmists’ enemies crying out for help to the
7 tn Or “mud” (so NAB, NIV, CEV). See HALOT 374 s.v. טִיט.
