David sustaineth his faith by the power of God,
Psalms 27:1 God is my lyght and saluation, whom then shall I feare? God is the strength of my life, of whom then shall I be afraide? Psalms 27:2 When the malitious approched neare vnto me for to eate vp my fleshe: mine enemies and foes stumbled and fell. Psalms 27:3 Though an hoast of men were layde in campe against me, yet shall not mine heart be afraide: and though there rose vp warre against me, [yet] I wyll put my trust in this.
by his love to the service of God,
Psalms 27:4 I haue desired one thyng of God, whiche once agayne I wyll earnestly require: euen that I may dwell in the house of God all the dayes of my life, to beholde the beautifulnes of God, and to seeke [it] in his temple. Psalms 27:5 For in the time of aduersitie he shall hide me in his tabernacle: yea in the secrete [place] of his pauilion he shall hide me, and set me vp vpon a rocke of stone. Psalms 27:6 And nowe he shall lift vp my head aboue mine enemies rounde about me: therfore I wyll offer in his tabernacle a sacrifice of great ioy, I wyll sing and prayse God with psalmes. Psalms 27:7 Hearken vnto my voyce O god, [when] I crye [vnto thee]: haue mercy vpon me and heare me. Psalms 27:8 My heart hath sayde vnto thee [according to this thy commaundement] seeke ye my face: thy face O God wyll I seeke.
Psalms 27:9 O hide not thou thy face from me, nor cast thy seruaunt away in a displeasure: thou hast ben my succour, leaue me not, neither forsake me O Lorde of my saluation. Psalms 27:10 For my father and mother forsoke me: and God did take me vp. Psalms 27:11 Teache me thy way O God: and leade me in a right path, because of mine enemies. Psalms 27:12 Deliuer me not into mine aduersaries handes: for there are false witnesses rysen vp against me, and such as speake wrong. Psalms 27:13 If I had not beleued [veryly] to see the goodnes of God in the lande of the liuing: [their spite had kylled me.] Psalms 27:14 Attende thou [therfore] vpon God, be of a good courage, and he will comfort thine heart: [I say] attende thou vpon God.
