Text Commentary

1

I thank thee, O Lord, Because I love thee. 2 O Most High, do 1 This verb may also be translated as an indicative. Conversely, verses 5–7 may express wishes rather than statements. not forsake me, Because thou art my hope. 3 Freely I received thy grace: I shall live by it. 4 My persecutors will come, but will not see me: 5 A cloud of gloom will fall 〈upon〉 their eyes, And a mist of obscurity will bring darkness upon them; 6 And they will not have light to see, That they may not seize me. 7 Their plan will become stupidity, 2 Lit. ‘swellings’. And what they have plotted will come back upon their own heads; 8 For they have thought out a plan, But it will not come to anything for them; 9 They have wickedly made preparations, But they have been found to be in vain. 10 For my hope is in the Lord, And I shall not be afraid; 11 And because the Lord is my deliverance, I shall not be afraid. 12 And he is on my head like a crown, And I shall not be shaken; 13 And even if everything is shaken, I shall remain; 14 And even if everything that is visible perishes, I shall not die: 15 Because the Lord is with me, and I am with him. Hallelujah.
