|New International Version (© 2011)|
The LORD is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.
King James Bible
The LORD is their strength, and he is the saving strength of his anointed.
American Standard Version
Jehovah is their strength, And he is a stronghold of salvation to his anointed.
Young's Literal Translation
Jehovah is strength to him, Yea, the strength of the salvation of His anointed is He.
Psalm 28:8 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The Lord is their strength - Instead of למו lamo, to them, eight MSS. of Kennicott and De Rossi have לעמו leammo to his people; and this reading is confirmed by the Septuagint, Syriac, Vulgate, Ethiopic, Arabic, and Anglo-Saxon. This makes the passage more precise and intelligible; and of the truth of the reading there can be no reasonable doubt. "The Lord is the strength of his People, and the saving strength of his anointed." Both king and people are protected, upheld, and saved by him.
