Psalms 9:13-14


9:13 when they prayed: 1 

“Have mercy on me, 2  Lord!

See how I am oppressed by those who hate me, 3 

O one who can snatch me away 4  from the gates of death!

9:14 Then I will 5  tell about all your praiseworthy acts; 6 

in the gates of Daughter Zion 7  I will rejoice because of your deliverance.” 8 

1 tn The words “when they prayed,” though not represented in the Hebrew text, are supplied in the translation for clarification. The petition in vv. 13-14 is best understood as the cry for help which the oppressed offered to God when the nations threatened. The Lord answered this request, prompting the present song of thanksgiving.

2 tn Or “show me favor.”

3 tn Heb “see my misery from the ones who hate me.”

4 tn Heb “one who lifts me up.”

5 tn Or “so that I might.”

6 tn Heb “all your praise.” “Praise” stands by metonymy for the mighty acts that prompt it.

7 sn Daughter Zion is an idiomatic title for Jerusalem. It appears frequently in the prophets, but only here in the psalms.

8 tn Heb “in your deliverance.”
