Footnotes

  1. Psalm 119:98 tn The plural form needs to be revocalized as a singular in order to agree with the preceding singular verb and the singular pronoun in the next line. The Lord’s “command” refers here to the law (see Ps 19:8).

100 I have more understanding than the elders,
    for I obey your precepts.(C)
