Psalms 73:13-14


73:13 I concluded, 1  “Surely in vain I have kept my motives 2  pure

and maintained a pure lifestyle. 3 

73:14 I suffer all day long,

and am punished every morning.”

1 tn The words “I concluded” are supplied in the translation. It is apparent that vv. 13-14 reflect the psalmist’s thoughts at an earlier time (see vv. 2-3), prior to the spiritual awakening he describes in vv. 17-28.

2 tn Heb “heart,” viewed here as the seat of one’s thoughts and motives.

3 tn Heb “and washed my hands in innocence.” The psalmist uses an image from cultic ritual to picture his moral lifestyle. The reference to “hands” suggests actions.
