"Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly" (Ps. 1:1)—The Hebrew preposition rendered "in" in this verse, and in the phrase "in the multitude of thy mercy" in Psalms 5:7, often means "by" and can also mean "because of" or "thanks to" (cf. Brown, Driver and Briggs: Herbrew Lexicon, p. 90). Thus in Psalms 1:1 we find that Moffatt renders: "Happy the man who never goes by the advice of the ungodly," and continues, "who never takes the sinners' road."
"With favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield" (Ps. 5:12)—The Hebrew verb "atar," which is here rendered by the somewhat archaic word "compass," can mean either "surround" or "crown" (Brown, etc., op. cit., p. 742). Briggs suggests the rendering: "Thou coverest them over with a great shield, with favour crownest them" (Commentary on Psalms, Vol. I, p. 39).
