"O Lord God of hosts, who is a strong Lord like unto thee? or to thy faithfulness round about thee?" (Ps. 89:8)—In the original Hebrew the phrase rendered "a strong Lord" follows "who is like unto thee," and is similar in appearance to a word meaning "thy lovingkindness." Moffatt evidently concludes that the latter word formed the original reading; hence his translation: "Who can compare with thee, in all thy love and faithfulness?"
"The light of thy countenance" (Ps. 89:15)—The Hebrew term "panim" has the literal meaning of "face" or "countenance," but has in addition many figurative uses, such as "presence, person, regard, favour" (cf. Brown, Driver, Briggs: Hebrew Lexicon, p. 816); while the word "or" (light) can mean "light of day, sunshine" (op. cit., p. 21). Consequently we could render: "The sunshine of thy presence." Compare Moffatt's translation: "The sunshine of thy favour."
