Psalm 37:12 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The lxx erroneously renders גּול ( equals גּל, Psalm 22:9) by ἀποκάλυψον instead of ἐπίῤῥιψον, 1 Peter 5:7 : roll the burden of cares of thy life's way upon Jahve, leave the guidance of thy life entirely to Him, and to Him alone, without doing anything in it thyself: He will gloriously accomplish (all that concerns thee): עשׂה, as in Psalm 22:32; Psalm 52:11; cf. Proverbs 16:3, and Paul Gerhardt's Befiehl du deine Wege, "Commit thou all thy ways," etc. The perfect in Psalm 37:6 is a continuation of the promissory יעשׂה. הוציא, as in Jeremiah 51:10, signifies to set forth: He will bring to light thy misjudged righteousness like the light (the sun, Job 31:26; Job 37:21, and more especially the morning sun, Proverbs 4:18), which breaks through the darkness; and thy down-trodden right (משׁפּטך is the pausal form of the singular beside Mugrash) like the bright light of the noon-day: cf. Isaiah 58:10, as on Psalm 37:4, Isaiah 58:14.
