  1. Psalm 35:17 tn Heb “bring back, restore.”
  2. Psalm 35:17 tn Or “my life.”
  3. Psalm 35:17 tn Heb “my only one.” The psalmist may mean that his life is precious, or that he feels isolated and alone (see Ps 22:20). The verb “guard” is supplied in the translation, because the verb “rescue” is understood by ellipsis (see the previous line).
