Bible Notes

"Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me" (Ps. 119:98)—The Hebrew consonantal text can be translated: "Thy commandments make wiser," or, "Thy commandment makes me wiser ... for it is ever with me." In any case, it is evident that it is the "commandment" (or commandments) that are said to be "ever with me," and not the "enemies."

"I have not departed from thy judgments" (Ps. 119:102)—The Hebrew word here translated "depart" means literally "to turn aside" (Brown, Driver, Briggs: Hebrew Lexicon, p. 693). Moffatt offers the rendering: "Never do I swerve from thine instructions;" and Kent: "From thy judgments I do not turn aside my steps;" while the Revised Version has: "I have not turned aside from thy judgments."
