Psalm 9:13 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
(Heb.: 9:8-9) Without a trace even of the remembrance of them the enemies are destroyed, while on the other hand Jahve endureth for ever. This strophe is the continuation of the preceding with the most intimate connection of contrast (just as the ב-strophe expresses the ground for what is said in the preceding strophe). The verb ישׁב has not the general signification "to remain" here (like עמד to endure), but just the same meaning as in Psalm 29:10. Everything that is opposed to Him comes to a terrible end, whereas He sits, or (which the fut. implies) abides, enthroned for ever, and that as Judge: He hath prepared His throne for the purpose of judgment. This same God, who has just given proof that He lives and reigns, will by and by judge the nations still more comprehensively, strictly, and impartially. תּכל, a word exclusively poetic and always without the article, signifies first (in distinction from ארץ the body of the earth and אדמה the covering or soil of the earth) the fertile (from יבל) surface of the globe, the οἰκουμένη. It is the last Judgment, of which all preceding judgments are harbingers and pledges, that is intended. In later Psalms this Davidic utterance concerning the future is repeated.

But you, O LORD, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.
Consider how many are my foes, and with what violent hatred they hate me.
O LORD, you have brought up my soul from Sheol; you restored me to life from among those who go down to the pit.
But my foes are vigorous, they are mighty, and many are those who hate me wrongfully.
For great is your steadfast love toward me; you have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.
they loathed any kind of food, and they drew near to the gates of death.
