Psalm 37:10 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
The "land" is throughout this Psalm the promised possession (Heilsgut), viz., the land of Jahve's presence, which has not merely a glorious past, but also a future rich in promises; and will finally, ore perfectly than under Joshua, become the inheritance of the true Israel. It is therefore to be explained: enjoy the quiet sure habitation which God gives thee, and diligently cultivate the virtue of faithfulness. The two imperatives in Psalm 37:3, since there are two of them (cf. Psalm 37:27) and the first is without any conjunctive Waw, have the appearance of being continued admonitions, not promises; and consequently אמוּנה is not an adverbial accusative as in Psalm 119:75 (Ewald), but the object to רעה, to pasture, to pursue, to practise (Syriac רדף, Hosea 12:2); cf. רעה, רע, one who interests himself in any one, or anything; Beduin râ‛â equals ṣâḥb, of every kind of closer relationship (Deutsch. Morgenlnd. Zeitschr. v. 9). In Psalm 37:4, ויתן is an apodosis: delight in Jahve (cf. Job 22:26; Psalm 27:10; Isaiah 58:14), so will He grant thee the desire (משׁאלת, as in Psalm 20:5) of thy heart; for he who, entirely severed from the creature, finds his highest delight in God, cannot desire anything that is at enmity with God, but he also can desire nothing that God, with whose will his own is thoroughly blended in love, would refuse him.

Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold, all together were broken in pieces, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, so that not a trace of them could be found.
