Continuing changes to my translations

I have made another 150 or so changes.  Now I am thinking in parallels and in separation of things that are different. Today I introduced a new character into the psalms - avoiding the repetition of the afflicted, the poor, the lowly or the hapless, I worked out a way of distinguishing some of these related words.

Here are the changes from the last 2 days - if you are interested. I think I have transferred them to the posts - but I can't be sure since there is no control on editing posts. I could design some more controls into my database, but just haven't gotten around to it. The right hand column is number of days ago.  There were some interesting problems here - like 10:6. Thoughts?  I would be happy to have a lesson in affliction.

Recently updated psalms

913because seeking their blood, he remembers
he does not forget the outcry of the abused
כִּי דֹרֵשׁ דָּמִים אוֹתָם זָכָר
לֹא שָׁכַח צַעֲקַת עניים
919Causes of the needy will not always be forgotten
hope of the abused will not perish for ever

from generation to generation
there's no evil in that

and he falls by His numerous hapless

Listen to my shout
Give ear to my prayer
not from lips of deceit

יְהַלְלוּ יְהוָה דֹּרְשָׁיו
יְחִי לְבַבְכֶם לָעַד

and will teach the abused his direction

יִשְׁמְעוּ עֲנָוִים וְיִשְׂמָחוּ
3711and the abused will inherit the earth
and will delight exquisitely in much peace

כָּל הַיּוֹם קֹדֵר הִלָּכְתִּי
3913Hear my prayer יְהוָה
and give ear to my cry
you will not be silent to my tears
for a guest I am with you
sitting as were all my ancestors
שִׁמְעָה תְפִלָּתִי יְהוָה
וְשַׁוְעָתִי הַאֲזִינָה
אֶל דִּמְעָתִי אַל תֶּחֱרַשׁ
כִּי גֵר אָנֹכִי עִמָּךְ
תּוֹשָׁב כְּכָל אֲבוֹתָי

443Your very hand
dispossessed nations and planted them
you brought evil to the tribes and sent them away
אַתָּה יָדְךָ
גּוֹיִם הוֹרַשְׁתָּ וַתִּטָּעֵם
תָּרַע לְאֻמִּים וַתְּשַׁלְּחֵם
4419our heart is not withdrawn
nor our steps turned from your path
לֹא נָסוֹג אָחוֹר לִבֵּנוּ
וַתֵּט אֲשֻׁרֵינוּ מִנִּי אָרְחֶךָ
529So this is the valiant one
that did not set God as his strength
but trusted in the abundance of his riches
and strengthened himself in his own calamity
הִנֵּה הַגֶּבֶר
לֹא יָשִׂים אֱלֹהִים מָעוּזּוֹ
וַיִּבְטַח בְּרֹב עָשְׁרוֹ
יָעֹז בְּהַוָּתוֹ
548a freewill offering I will offer to you
I will give thanks to your name יְהוָה for it is good
בִּנְדָבָה אֶזְבְּחָה לָּךְ
אוֹדֶה שִּׁמְךָ יְהוָה כִּי טוֹב

his eyes watch in the nations
the rebellious will not exalt for themselves

I cried out
my voice to God

781An insight of Asaph
Listen my people to my instruction
incline your ears to the words of my mouth
מַשְׂכִּיל לְאָסָף
הַאֲזִינָה עַמִּי תּוֹרָתִי
הַטּוּ אָזְנְכֶם לְאִמְרֵי פִי

788and not become like their ancestors
a rebellious and provocative generation
a generation not preparing its heart
and its spirit did not believe God
וְלֹא יִהְיוּ כַּאֲבוֹתָם
דּוֹר סוֹרֵר וּמֹרֶה
דּוֹר לֹא הֵכִין לִבּוֹ
וְלֹא נֶאֶמְנָה אֶת אֵל רוּחוֹ
7857and they withdrew and acted treacherously like their ancestors
they were changed like an unready bow
וַיִּסֹּגוּ וַיִּבְגְּדוּ כַּאֲבוֹתָם
נֶהְפְּכוּ כְּקֶשֶׁת רְמִיָּה
866Give ear יְהוָה to my prayer
and listen to the voice of my supplication
הַאֲזִינָה יְהוָה תְּפִלָּתִי
וְהַקְשִׁיבָה בְּקוֹל תַּחֲנוּנוֹתָי
-2
889you have removed from me those I knew
you have set me as an abomination to them
I am restrained and do not come out
הִרְחַקְתָּ מְיֻדָּעַי מִמֶּנִּי
שַׁתַּנִי תוֹעֵבוֹת לָמוֹ
כָּלֻא וְלֹא אֵצֵא
9212And my eye has noted concerning those watching me
and of those rising up from evildoing against me
my ear has heard
וַתַּבֵּט עֵינִי בְּשׁוּרָי
בַּקָּמִים עָלַי מְרֵעִים
תִּשְׁמַעְנָה אָזְנָי

and for their iniquity will be afflicted
אֱוִלִים מִדֶּרֶךְ פִּשְׁעָם
וּמֵעֲו‍ֹנֹתֵיהֶם יִתְעַנּוּ
10726they ascend heavens
they descend the abyss
their beings in evil dissolve
יַעֲלוּ שָׁמַיִם
יֵרְדוּ תְהוֹמוֹת
נַפְשָׁם בְּרָעָה תִתְמוֹגָג
10739And they decrease and are depressed
through coercion of evil and sorrow

מֵעֹצֶר רָעָה וְיָגוֹן
1148who changes the rock into a pool of waters
the flint into his fountain of waters
הַהֹפְכִי הַצּוּר אֲגַם מָיִם

גַּם לֹא יָכְלוּ לִי
1302Lord hear - in my voice
so let it be that your ears listen
to the voice of my supplication
אֲדֹנָי שִׁמְעָה בְקוֹלִי
תִּהְיֶינָה אָזְנֶיךָ קַשֻּׁבוֹת
לְקוֹל תַּחֲנוּנָי

1386For high is יְהוָה yet he sees the humble
and the haughty he knows from afar

וְגָבֹהַּ מִמֶּרְחָק יְיֵדָע
13924and see if a way of injury is in me
and guide me in the way everlasting
וּרְאֵה אִם דֶּרֶךְ עֹצֶב בִּי
וּנְחֵנִי בְּדֶרֶךְ עוֹלָם
1407I said to יְהוָה you are my God
