Psalm 94:18

slip not [Heb.









(5) Hold up.--Not, as in the Authorised Version, imperative, which is directly opposed to the context. The psalmist still asserts his innocence. Render:--

My course kept close in thy tracks,

My footsteps have not wavered.

(Comp. Job 23:11; Psalm 41:12.)

Paths.--Literally, wheel-tracks.

Verse 5. - Hold thou up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not. So De Wette and Rosenmuller; but most recent critics prefer to consider the words as an assertion rather than a prayer, and translate, "My steps have held fast to thy paths: [therefore] my feet have not been moved" (Kay, Hengstenberg, Alexander, Cheyne, 'Speaker's Commentary,' Revised Version).
