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

The verb הגה unites in itself the two meanings of meditating and of meditative utterance (vid., Psalm 2:1), just as אמר those of thinking and speaking. Psalm 37:31 in this connection affirms the stability of the moral nature. The walk of the righteous has a fixed inward rule, for the Tפra is to him not merely an external object of knowledge and a compulsory precept; it is in his heart, and, because it is the Tפra of his God whom he loves, as the motive of his actions closely united with his own will. On תּמעד, followed by the subject in the plural, compare Psalm 18:35; Psalm 73:2 Chethמb.
