Psalm 31:15-17 New English Translation (NET Bible)

15 You determine my destiny.[a]
Rescue me from the power of my enemies and those who chase me.
16 Smile[b] on your servant.
Deliver me because of your faithfulness.
17 O Lord, do not let me be humiliated,
for I call out to you.
May evil men be humiliated.
May they go wailing to the grave.[c]


  1. Psalm 31:15 tn Heb “in your hand [are] my times.”
  2. Psalm 31:16 tn Heb “cause your face to shine.”
  3. Psalm 31:17 tn The verb יִדְּמוּ (yiddemu) is understood as a form of דָּמַם (damam, “wail, lament”). Another option is to take the verb from דָּמַם (“be quiet”; see BDB 198-99 s.v. I דָּמַם), in which case one might translate, “May they lie silent in the grave.”
