Trust in YHVH and do good, so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Psalm 37:3
Batach – Trust – The concept is one of clinging to security, having confidence in, relying on.
Tov – Good – This word is so much more than good. The idea is of a home, functioning well, beautifully maintained, a place of comfort and bounty.
Shakan – Dwell – This gives the idea of a permanent, settled residence. There is not constant upset with moving around.
Ra’ah – Fed – The entire picture of a shepherd and his sheep is in this word. The sheep do not think of their next meal, or lambing season, or how to treat a broken leg. They simply know the shepherd will handle it. They are fully cared for by the shepherd.
So to rewrite this verse, it may look something like this:
This was such a good reminder to me… His words are so powerful!!
