NET © Notes

tn Or “How abundant are your blessings!”

tn Heb “for those who fear you.”

tn “Taking shelter” in the Lord is an idiom for seeking his protection. Seeking his protection presupposes and even demonstrates the subject’s loyalty to the Lord. In the psalms those who “take shelter” in the Lord are contrasted with the wicked and equated with those who love, fear, and serve the Lord (Pss 2:12; 5:11-12; 34:21-22).

tn Heb “you work [your favor] for the ones seeking shelter in you before the sons of men.”
