Psalms 62:11

_ _ once; twice — (as in Job 33:14; Job 40:5), are used to give emphasis to the sentiment. God’s power is tempered by His mercy, which it also sustains.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

Yes god speaks once but his word so PROFOUND that it echos (twice). All said once from his mouth is heard twice bc his word is final. Everything belongs to God. You mean to tell me you have never been given a word & followed it, then God spoke again to you to confirm your order? Truly all power belongs to him.

What would be the correct translation; "these two things have I heard" or "twice I heard this"? Reason why I ask is that there's a big difference between both translations
