1 tn Heb “I will live as a resident alien in your tent permanently.” The cohortative is understood here as indicating resolve. Another option is to take it as expressing a request, “please let me live” (cf. NASB, NRSV).
2 sn I will find shelter in the protection of your wings. The metaphor compares God to a protective mother bird.
