In Psalm 69:36c-37b reference is made to the deuteronomic-deuteronomistic formula "yr? 'rs" (i e possession of the land). A reinterpretation of this formula in these verses is proposed. The promise regarding the possession of the land is not made to the whole of Israel, as is the case in Deuteronomistic literature, but, instead, possession of the land is promised only to the "offspring of the servants", in other words "those who love his name", the pious, the community of the "servants". The aim of this article is to deal with the issue of the "possession of the land" in Psalm 69:36c-37b in more detail.
