Psalms 69:35-36

Context

69:35 For God will deliver Zion

and rebuild the cities of Judah,

and his people 1  will again live in them and possess Zion. 2 

69:36 The descendants of his servants will inherit it,

and those who are loyal to him 3  will live in it. 4 

1 tn Heb “they”; the referent (God’s people) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

2 tn Heb “it.” The third feminine singular pronominal suffix probably refers to “Zion” (see Pss 48:12; 102:14); thus the referent has been specified in the translation for clarity.

3 tn Heb “the lovers of his name.” The phrase refers to those who are loyal to God (cf. v. 35). See Pss 5:11; 119:132; Isa 56:6.

4 sn Verses 35-36 appear to be an addition to the psalm from the time of the exile. The earlier lament reflects an individual’s situation, while these verses seem to reflect a communal application of it.
