24. Psalm 27- Davids’ Prayer of confidence

You YHWH Are my Light and my Salvation, so whom shall I fear? YHWH, The Stronghold of my life, so of whom shall I be afraid? When evildoers assail me, uttering slanders against me, my adversaries and foes, they shall stumble and fall. Though a host encamp against me, my heart shall not fear, even though war arise against me, still I will be confident. One thing have I asked of You YHWH that I will seek after, that I may dwell in Your House, the House Of YHWH all the eons of my life, to behold the Beauty Of You YHWH and to inquire in Your Temple. For You Will Hide me in Your Shelter in the day of trouble, You Will Conceal me Under the Cover Of Your Tent, You Will Set me High upon a rock. And my head shall be lifted up above my enemies round about me and I will offer in Your Tent sacrificial shouts of joy. I will give praise to You YHWH. So Hear, O Lord, when I ask of Thee, Be Gracious to me and Answer! You Have Said: “Seek ye My Face.” My heart says to You: “Your Face, O Lord, do I seek.” Yea Hide not Your Face from me. Turn not Your Servant away in anger, thou Who Has Been my Help. Cast me not off, forsake me not, O God Of my Salvation! For my father and my mother have forsaken me, but You YHWH Will Take me Up. Yea Teach me Your Way, O Lord, and Lead me on a level path because of my enemies. Give me not up to the will of my adversaries, for false witnesses have risen against me and they breathe out cruelty. So I say: I believe that I shall see the Goodness Of YHWH in the Land of the Living! Everyone wait for YHWH, be strong and let your heart have courage, yea, wait for YHWH!
