Psalm 27: Sucking up to Yahweh, doo dah, doo dah…
Psalms Part 27 of 150
1 Yahweh is my light and my salvation.
Whom shall I fear?
Your own stupidity and gullibility.
Yahweh is the strength of my life.
Weakness is more like it.
Of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When evildoers came at me to eat up my flesh,
even my adversaries and my foes, they stumbled and fell.
Not all the time.
3 Though an army should encamp against me,
my heart shall not fear.
Untrue. You were afraid and ran to Yahweh for protection.
Though war should rise against me,
even then I will be confident.
You lost your confidence quite a lot. You really should read your own book.
4 One thing I have asked of Yahweh, that I will seek after,
that I may dwell in the house of Yahweh all the days of my life,
to see Yahweh’s beauty,
and to inquire in his temple.
5 For in the day of trouble he will keep me secretly in his pavilion.
In the covert of his tabernacle he will hide me.
Why would he need to hide you?
He will lift me up on a rock.
6 Now my head will be lifted up above my enemies around me.
I will offer sacrifices of joy in his tent.
It wouldn’t exactly be joyous for the innocent lives you throw away when you sacrifice them.
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to Yahweh.
Over dead bodies and running blood.
7 Hear, Yahweh, when I cry with my voice.
Have mercy also on me, and answer me.
8 When you said, “Seek my face,”
my heart said to you, “I will seek your face, Yahweh.”
9 Don’t hide your face from me.
Don’t put your servant away in anger.
You have been my help.
Don’t abandon me,
neither forsake me, God of my salvation.
You died. That is not salvation.
10 When my father and my mother forsake me,
then Yahweh will take me up.
11 Teach me your way, Yahweh.
Lead me in a straight path, because of my enemies.
When a person has enemies he should look to himself and ask why? What have I done to cause myself to have enemies?
12 Don’t deliver me over to the desire of my adversaries,
for false witnesses have risen up against me,
such as breathe out cruelty.
13 I am still confident of this:
I will see the goodness of Yahweh in the land of the living.
14 Wait for Yahweh.
Be strong, and let your heart take courage.
Yes, wait for Yahweh.
Don’t hold your breath.
