Psalm 94:12-14 New English Translation (NET Bible)

12 How blessed is the one[a] whom you instruct, O Lord,
the one whom you teach from your law,
13 in order to protect him from times of trouble,[b]
until the wicked are destroyed.[c]
14 Certainly[d] the Lord does not forsake his people;
he does not abandon the nation that belongs to him.[e]


  1. Psalm 94:12 tn Heb “[Oh] the happiness [of] the man.” Hebrew wisdom literature often assumes and reflects the male-oriented perspective of ancient Israelite society. The principle of the psalm is certainly applicable to all people, regardless of their gender or age. To facilitate modern application, we translate the gender and age specific “man” with the more neutral “one.” The generic masculine pronoun is used in v. 2.
  2. Psalm 94:13 tn Heb “to give him rest from the days of trouble.”
  3. Psalm 94:13 tn Heb “until a pit is dug for the wicked.”
  4. Psalm 94:14 tn Or “for.”
  5. Psalm 94:14 tn Or “his inheritance.”
