Psalm 25: 7


Do not remember the rebellious sins of my youth. Remember me in the light of your unfailing love, for you are merciful, O LORD.

When I looked for the Hebrew word for light, I could not find it.

Also, there are translations that do not have light at all.



Hi Jim,

"In the light of" is an English expression meaning "in view of", "taking into account" "considering". Do not expect to find the word "light" in the Hebrew.




That makes sense!!!!!!!!!!!!!
