David sustaineth his faith by the power of God,
Psalms 27:1 The LORDE is my light and my health: whom then shulde I feare? the LORDE is the strength of my life, for whom the shulde I be afrayed? Psalms 27:2 Therfore when the wicked (euen myne enemies & my foes) came vpon me, to eate vp my flesh, they stombled and fell. Psalms 27:3 Though an hoost of men were layed agaynst me, yet shal not my hert be afrayed: and though there rose vp warre against me, yet wil I put my trust in him.
by his love to the service of God,
Psalms 27:4 One thinge haue I desyred of the LORDE, which I wil requyre: namely, that I maye dwell in the house of the LORDE all the dayes of my life, to beholde the fayre beutie of the LORDE, and to vyset his temple. Psalms 27:5 For in the tyme of trouble he hath hyd me in his tabernacle, yee in the secrete place of his dwellinge hath he kepte and set me vp vpon a rocke of stone. Psalms 27:6 And now hath he lift vp my heade aboue myne enemies, that copassed me rounde aboute. Psalms 27:7 Therfore wil I offre in his dwellinge, the oblacion of thakesgeuynge: I wil both synge & speake prayses vnto the LORDE. Psalms 27:8 Herke vnto my voyce (O LORDE) when I crie vnto the: haue mercy vpon me & heare me.
Psalms 27:9 My hert speaketh vnto the, my face seketh the, yee LORDE, thy face wil I seke. O hyde not thou thy face fro me, cast not thy seruaunt of in displeasure. Psalms 27:10 Thou art my succoure, leaue me not, nether forsake me, O God my Sauioure. Psalms 27:11 For my father and my mother haue forsaken me, but the LORDE hath taken me vp. Shewe me thy waye O LORDE, and lede me in the right path, because of myne enemies. Psalms 27:12 Delyuer me not into the wylles of myne aduersaries, for there are false wytnesses rysen vp against me, and they ymagyn myschefe. Psalms 27:13 Neuerthelesse, I beleue verely to se the goodnesse of the LORDE in the londe of the lyuynge. Psalms 27:14 O tary thou ye LORDES leysure, be stronge, let thine hert be of good comforte, and wayte thou still for the LORDE.
