Psalms 94:20-21


94:20 Cruel rulers 1  are not your allies,

those who make oppressive laws. 2 

94:21 They conspire against 3  the blameless, 4 

and condemn to death the innocent. 5 

1 tn Heb “a throne of destruction.” “Throne” stands here by metonymy for rulers who occupy thrones.

2 tn Heb “Is a throne of destruction united to you, one that forms trouble upon a statute?” The rhetorical question anticipates the answer, “Of course not!” The translation, while not preserving the interrogative form of the statement, reflects its rhetorical force.

3 tn Or “attack.”

4 tn Heb “the life of the blameless.”

5 tn Heb “and the blood of the innocent they declare guilty.”
