Psalms 271 A Psalm of David. Jehovah is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? Jehovah is the ▼ strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid? ▼
▼ 1) Or stronghold2 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. ▼
▼ 1) Or In this4 One thing have I asked of Jehovah, that will I seek after; That I may dwell in the house of Jehovah all the days of my life, To behold ▼ the beauty of Jehovah, And to ▼
▼ 2inquire in his temple. ▼
▼ 1) Or the pleasantness 2) Or consider his temple5 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. ▼
▼ 1) Heb tent6 And now shall my head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me. And I will offer in his ▼ tabernacle sacrifices of ▼
▼ 2joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto Jehovah. ▼
▼ 1) Heb tent 2) Or shouting ; Or trumpet-sound7 Hear, O Jehovah, 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, Jehovah, 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 God of my salvation. 10 ▼ When my father and my mother forsake me, Then Jehovah will take me up. ▼
▼ 1) Or For my father and my mother have forsaken me, But Jehovah etc11 Teach me thy way, O Jehovah; And lead me in a plain path, Because of ▼ mine enemies. ▼
▼ 1) Or them that lie in wait for me12 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 Jehovah In the land of the living. 14 Wait for Jehovah: Be strong, And let thy heart take courage; Yea, wait thou for Jehovah.
