NETNew English Translation
21 The Lord deserves praise#tn Heb “blessed [be] the Lord.”
for he demonstrated his amazing faithfulness to me when I was besieged by enemies.#tn Heb “for he caused his faithfulness to be amazing to me in a besieged city.” The psalmist probably speaks figuratively here. He compares his crisis to being trapped in a besieged city, but the Lord answered his prayer for help. Verses 19-24 were apparently written after the Lord answered the prayer of vv. 1-18.
