Bible Notes

"That it should not be removed for ever" (Ps. 104:5)—A more literal rendering of the Hebrew verb would be "be shaken or moved" (Brown, Driver, Briggs: Hebrew Lexicon, p. 557). Thus the Genevan Version (1560) had: "so that it shall never move;" while Moffatt translates: "never to be shaken;" Kent: "that it should not be moved forever;" and Smith: "that it might not be moved forever and ever."

"The earth is full of thy riches" (Ps. 104:24)—The word which is here translated "riches" is derived from a root which has the literal meaning of "to get or acquire," though when employed with reference to Deity, it is sometimes used in the sense of "to create" (Brown, etc., op. cit., p. 888). Hence we find: "thy creatures" (Moffatt); and, "Thy creations" (Smith).
