Psalms 17:7


17:7 Accomplish awesome, faithful deeds, 1 

you who powerfully deliver those who look to you for protection from their enemies. 2 

Psalms 25:6


25:6 Remember 3  your compassionate and faithful deeds, O Lord,

for you have always acted in this manner. 4 

1 tn Heb “Set apart faithful acts.”

2 tn Heb “[O] one who delivers those who seek shelter from the ones raising themselves up, by your right hand.” The Lord’s “right hand” here symbolizes his power to protect and deliver.

sn Those who look to you for protection from their enemies. “Seeking shelter” in the Lord is an idiom for seeking his protection. Seeking his protection presupposes and even demonstrates the subject’s loyalty to the Lord. In the psalms those who “take shelter” in the Lord are contrasted with the wicked and equated with those who love, fear and serve the Lord (Pss 5:11-12; 31:17-20; 34:21-22).

3 tn That is, “remember” with the intention of repeating.

4 tn Heb “for from antiquity [are] they.”
