Psalm 73:23-24 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

23 Yet I am always with you;
    you take hold of my right hand.
24 With your counsel you guide me,
    and at the end receive me with honor.[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 73:24 And at the end receive me with honor: a perhaps deliberately enigmatic verse. It is understood by some commentators as reception into heavenly glory, hence the traditional translation, “receive me into glory.” The Hebrew verb can indeed refer to mysterious divine elevation of a righteous person into God’s domain: Enoch in Gn 5:24; Elijah in 2 Kgs 2:11–12; the righteous psalmist in Ps 49:16. Personal resurrection in the Old Testament, however, is clearly attested only in the second century B.C. The verse is perhaps best left unspecified as a reference to God’s nearness and protection.
