Psalm 27:12 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
With ועתּה the poet predicts inferentially (cf. Psalm 2:10) the fulfilment of what he fervently desires, the guarantee of which lies in his very longing itself. זבחי תּרוּעה do not mean sacrifices in connection with which the trumpets are blown by the priests; for this was only the case in connection with the sacrifices of the whole congregation (Numbers 10:10), not with those of individuals. תּרוּעה is a synonym of תּודה, Psalm 26:7; and זבחי תּרוּעה is a stronger form of expression for זבחי תודה (Psalm 107:22), i.e., (cf. זבחי צדק, Psalm 4:6; Psalm 51:21) sacrifices of jubilant thanksgiving: he will offer sacrifices in which his gratitude plays a prominent part, and will sing songs of thanksgiving, accompanied by the playing of stringed instruments, to his Deliverer, who has again and so gloriously verified His promises.

If a malicious witness arises to accuse a person of wrongdoing,
The judges shall inquire diligently, and if the witness is a false witness and has accused his brother falsely,
from the wicked who do me violence, my deadly enemies who surround me.
Malicious witnesses rise up; they ask me of things that I do not know.
the LORD protects him and keeps him alive; he is called blessed in the land; you do not give him up to the will of his enemies.
