Psalm 118:25-26 New English Translation (NET Bible)

25 Please, Lord, deliver!
Please, Lord, grant us success![a]
26 May the one who comes in the name of the Lord[b] be blessed.
We will pronounce blessings on you[c] in the Lord’s temple.[d]


  1. Psalm 118:25 sn A petition for deliverance and success seems odd in a psalm thanking God for deliverance, but it is not unique (see Ps 9:19-20). The people ask God to continue to intervene for them as he has for the psalmist.
  2. Psalm 118:26 sn The people refer here to the psalmist, who enters the Lord’s temple to thank him publicly (see vv. 19-21), as the one who comes in the name of the Lord.
  3. Psalm 118:26 tn The pronominal suffix is second masculine plural, but the final mem (ם) is probably dittographic (note the mem [מ] at the beginning of the following form) or enclitic, in which case the suffix may be taken as second masculine singular, referring to the psalmist.
  4. Psalm 118:26 tn Heb “from the house of the Lord.”
