Psalm 143:10 New English Translation (NET Bible)

10 Teach me to do what pleases you,[a]
for you are my God.
May your kind presence[b]
lead me[c] into a level land.[d]


  1. Psalm 143:10 tn Or “your will.” See Ps 40:8.
  2. Psalm 143:10 tn Heb “your good spirit.” God’s “spirit” may refer here to his presence (see the note on the word “presence” in Ps 139:7) or to his personal Spirit (see Ps 51:10).
  3. Psalm 143:10 tn The prefixed verbal form is taken as a jussive. Taking the statement as a prayer fits well with the petitionary tone of vv. 7-10a.
  4. Psalm 143:10 sn A level land (where one can walk free of obstacles) here symbolizes divine blessing and protection. See Pss 26:12 and 27:11 for similar imagery.
