49:16 Do not be afraid when a man becomes rich 1
and his wealth multiplies! 2
91:5 You need not fear the terrors of the night, 3
the arrow that flies by day,
[49:16] 1 sn When a man becomes rich. Why would people fear such a development? The acquisition of wealth makes individuals powerful and enables them to oppress others (see vv. 5-6).
[49:16] 2 tn Heb “when the glory of his house grows great.”
[91:5] 3 tn This probably alludes to a sneak attack by enemies in the darkness of night (see Song 3:8).
