Psalms 119:16

Context

119:16 I find delight 1  in your statutes;

I do not forget your instructions. 2 

Psalms 119:61

Context

119:61 The ropes of the wicked tighten around 3  me,

but I do not forget your law.

Psalms 119:176

Context

119:176 I have wandered off like a lost sheep. 4 

Come looking for your servant,

for I do not forget your commands.

1 tn The imperfects in this verse emphasize the attitude the psalmist maintains toward God’s law. Another option is to translate with the future tense, “I will find delight…I will not forget.”

2 tn Heb “your word.” Many medieval Hebrew mss as well as the LXX read the plural here.

3 tn Heb “surround.”

4 tn Heb “I stray like a lost sheep.” It is possible that the point of the metaphor is vulnerability: The psalmist, who is threatened by his enemies, feels as vulnerable as a straying, lost sheep. This would not suggest, however, that he has wandered from God’s path (see the second half of the verse, as well as v. 110).
