Psalms 71:15-18


71:15 I will tell about your justice,

and all day long proclaim your salvation, 1 

though I cannot fathom its full extent. 2 

71:16 I will come and tell about 3  the mighty acts of the sovereign Lord.

I will proclaim your justice – yours alone.

71:17 O God, you have taught me since I was young,

and I am still declaring 4  your amazing deeds.

71:18 Even when I am old and gray, 5 

O God, do not abandon me,

until I tell the next generation about your strength,

and those coming after me about your power. 6 

1 tn Heb “my mouth declares your vindication, all the day your deliverance.”

2 tn Heb “though I do not know [the] numbers,” that is, the tally of God’s just and saving acts. HALOT 768 s.v. סְפֹרוֹת understands the plural noun to mean “the art of writing.”

3 tn Heb “I will come with.”

4 tn Heb “and until now I am declaring.”

5 tn Heb “and even unto old age and gray hair.”

6 tn Heb “until I declare your arm to a generation, to everyone who comes your power.” God’s “arm” here is an anthropomorphism that symbolizes his great strength.
