Psalms 25:5

Context

25:5 Guide me into your truth 1  and teach me.

For you are the God who delivers me;

on you I rely all day long.

Psalms 25:9

Context

25:9 May he show 2  the humble what is right! 3 

May he teach 4  the humble his way!

1 sn The Lord’s commandments are referred to as truth here because they are a trustworthy and accurate expression of the divine will.

2 tn The prefixed verbal form is jussive; the psalmist expresses his prayer.

3 tn Heb “may he guide the humble into justice.” The Hebrew term עֲנָוִים (’anavim, “humble”) usually refers to the oppressed, but in this context, where the psalmist confesses his sin and asks for moral guidance, it apparently refers to sinners who humble themselves before God and seek deliverance from their sinful condition.

4 tn The prefixed verbal form is interpreted as a jussive (it stands parallel to the jussive form, “may he guide”).
