Chapter 27

 

A Psalm of David.

1

Yahweh is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? Yahweh is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?

2

When evil-doers came upon me to eat up my flesh, Even mine adversaries and my foes, they stumbled and fell.

3

Though a host should encamp against me, My heart shall not fear: Though war should rise against me, Even then will I be confident.

4

One thing have I asked of Yahweh, that will I seek after; That I may dwell in the house of Yahweh all the days of my life, To behold the beauty of Yahweh, And to inquire in his temple.

5

For in the day of trouble he will keep me secretly in his pavilion: In the covert of his tabernacle will he hide me; He will lift me up upon a rock.

6

And now shall my head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me. And I will offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy (teruah); I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto Yahweh.

7

Hear, O Yahweh, when I cry with my voice: Have mercy also upon me, and answer me.

8

When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; My heart said unto thee, Thy face, Yahweh, will I seek.

9

Hide not thy face from me; Put not thy servant away in anger: Thou hast been my help; Cast me not off, neither forsake me, O Elohim of my salvation.

10

When my father and my mother forsake me, Then Yahweh will take me up.

11

Teach me thy way, O Yahweh; And lead me in a plain path, Because of mine enemies.

12

Deliver me not over unto the will of mine adversaries: For false witnesses are risen up against me, And such as breathe out cruelty.

13

I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of Yahweh In the land of the living.

14

Wait for Yahweh: Be strong, and let thy heart take courage; Yea, wait thou for Yahweh.
