David sustaineth his faith by the power of God,
Psalms 27:1 By David. Jehovah [is] my light and my salvation, Whom do I fear? Jehovah [is] the strength of my life, Of whom am I afraid? Psalms 27:2 When evil doers come near to me to eat my flesh, My adversaries and mine enemies to me, They have stumbled and fallen. Psalms 27:3 Though a host doth encamp against me, My heart doth not fear, Though war riseth up against me, In this I [am] confident.
by his love to the service of God,
Psalms 27:4 One [thing] I asked of Jehovahit I seek. My dwelling in the house of Jehovah, All the days of my life, To look on the pleasantness of Jehovah, And to inquire in His temple. Psalms 27:5 For He hideth me in a tabernacle in the day of evil, He hideth me in a secret place of His tent, On a rock he raiseth me up. Psalms 27:6 And now, lifted up is my head, Above my enemiesmy surrounders, And I sacrifice in His tent sacrifices of shouting, I sing, yea, I sing praise to Jehovah. Psalms 27:7 Hear, O Jehovah, my voiceI call, And favour me, and answer me. Psalms 27:8 To Thee said my heart 'They sought my face, Thy face, O Jehovah, I seek.'
Psalms 27:9 Hide not Thy face from me, Turn not aside in anger Thy servant, My help Thou hast been. Leave me not, nor forsake me, O God of my salvation. Psalms 27:10 When my father and my mother Have forsaken me, then doth Jehovah gather me. Psalms 27:11 Shew me, O Jehovah, Thy way, And lead me in a path of uprightness, For the sake of my beholders. Psalms 27:12 Give me not to the will of my adversaries, For risen against me have false witnesses, And they breathe out violence to me. Psalms 27:13 I had not believed to look on the goodness of Jehovah In the land of the living! Psalms 27:14 Look unto Jehovahbe strong, And He doth strengthen thy heart, Yea, look unto Jehovah!
