Psalm 94:16-18 New English Translation (NET Bible)

16 Who will rise up to defend me[a] against the wicked?
Who will stand up for me against the evildoers?[b]
17 If the Lord had not helped me,
I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death.[c]
18 If I say, “My foot is slipping,”
your loyal love, O Lord, supports me.


  1. Psalm 94:16 tn Heb “for me.”
  2. Psalm 94:16 sn Who will stand up for me…? The questions anticipate the answer, “No one except God” (see v. 17).
  3. Psalm 94:17 tn Heb “If the Lord [were] not my help, quickly my life would have dwelt in silence.” The psalmist, perhaps speaking as the nation’s representative, recalls God’s past intervention. For other examples of conditional sentences with the term לוּלֵי (lule, “if not”) in the protasis and a perfect verbal form in the apodosis, see Pss 119:92 and 124:2-5.
