Psalms 35:26


35:26 May those who want to harm me be totally embarrassed and ashamed! 1 

May those who arrogantly taunt me be covered with shame and humiliation! 2 

Psalms 38:16


38:16 I have prayed for deliverance, because otherwise they will gloat over me; 3 

when my foot slips they will arrogantly taunt me. 4 

1 tn Heb “may they be embarrassed and ashamed together, the ones who rejoice over my harm.”

2 tn Heb “may they be clothed with shame and humiliation, the ones who magnify [themselves] against me.” The prefixed verbal forms in v. 26 are understood as jussives (see vv. 24b-25, where the negative particle אַל (’al) appears before the prefixed verbal forms, indicating they are jussives). The psalmist is calling down judgment on his enemies.

3 tn Heb “For I said, ‘Lest they rejoice over me.’” The psalmist recalls the motivating argument of his petition. He probably prefaced this statement with a prayer for deliverance (see Pss 7:1-2; 13:3-4; 28:1).

4 tn Heb “they will magnify against me.” See Pss 35:26; 55:13.
