1 tn Heb “my soul clings to the dirt.” The Hebrew term נֶפֶשׁ (nefesh, “being; soul”) with a pronominal suffix is often equivalent to a pronoun, especially in poetry (see BDB 660 s.v. נֶפֶשׁ 4.a).

2 tn Heb “according to your word.” Many medieval Hebrew mss read the plural “your words.”

3 tn Some translate “my soul weeps,” taking the verb דָלַף (dalaf) from a root meaning “to drip; to drop” (BDB 196 s.v. דֶּלַף). On the basis of cognate evidence from Arabic and Akkadian, HALOT 223 s.v. II דלף proposes a homonymic root here, meaning “be sleepless.” Following L. C. Allen (Psalms 101-150 [WBC], 127, 135) the translation assumes that the verb is cognate with Ugaritic dlp, “to collapse; to crumple” in CTA 2 iv. 17, 26. See G. R. Driver, Canaanite Myths and Legends, 44, 144.

4 tn Heb “according to your word.” Many medieval Hebrew mss read the plural “your words.”

5 tn Heb “and I will answer [the] one who insults me a word.” The prefixed verbal form with vav (ו) conjunctive indicates purpose/result after the jussive (see v. 41).

6 tn Heb “do good.”

7 tn Heb “according to your word.”

8 tn Heb “those who fear you will see me and rejoice.”

9 tn Heb “my soul pines for.” See Ps 84:2.

10 tn Heb “according to your word.”

11 tn Heb “may my cry approach before you.”
