I will continually[a] thank you when[b] you execute judgment;[c]
I will rely on[d] you,[e] for your loyal followers know you are good.[f]


  1. Psalm 52:9 tn Or, hyperbolically, “forever.”
  2. Psalm 52:9 tn Or “for.”
  3. Psalm 52:9 tn Heb “you have acted.” The perfect verbal form (1) probably indicates a future perfect here. The psalmist promises to give thanks when the expected vindication has been accomplished. Other options include (2) a generalizing (“for you act”) or (3) rhetorical (“for you will act”) use.
  4. Psalm 52:9 tn Or “wait on.”
  5. Psalm 52:9 tn Heb “your name.” God’s “name” refers here to his reputation and revealed character.
  6. Psalm 52:9 tn Heb “for it is good in front of your loyal followers.”
