Psalms 103:9


He does not always accuse, and does not stay angry. 1 


Ps 30:5; Isa 57:16; Jer 3:5; Mic 7:18,19

NET © Notes

tn The Hebrew verb נָטַר (natar) is usually taken to mean “to keep; to guard,” with “anger” being understood by ellipsis. The idiom “to guard anger” is then understood to mean “to remain angry” (see Lev 19:18; Jer 3:5, 12; Nah 1:2). However, it is possible that this is a homonymic root meaning “to be angry” (see HALOT 695 s.v. נטר).
