How long must I lay up cares within me and have sorrow in my heart day after day? How long shall my enemy exalt himself over me?
Consider and answer me, O Master my Yah; lighten the eyes [of my faith to behold Your face in the pitchlike darkness], lest I sleep the sleep of death,
Lest my enemy say, I have prevailed over him, and those that trouble me rejoice when I am shaken.
But I have trusted, leaned on, and been confident in Your mercy and loving-kindness; my heart shall rejoice and be in high spirits in Your salvation.
I will sing to the Master, because He has dealt bountifully with me.
Yes! You Have Dealt Bountifully With Me …?
And though my insides turn and churn? My gaze is set on You forever never to return or turn back, because You have dealt bountifully with me.
- And so you are doing with each one of your children individually, so?
- I continue with my prayer and supplication in Psalms 9.
I Will Recount Your Wonderful Deeds
To the Chief Musician, or to You my Master; a Psalm of David and now a Psalm of thiaBasilia You are inscribing in my inner man for all practical purposes.
I WILL praise You, O Master, with my whole heart; I will show forth (recount and tell aloud) all Your marvelous works and wonderful deeds!
I will rejoice in You and be in high spirits; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High!
When my enemies turned back, they stumbled and perished before You.
For You have maintained my right and my cause; You sat on the throne judging righteously.
You have rebuked the nations, You have destroyed the wicked; You have blotted out their name forever and ever.
The enemy have been cut off and have vanished in everlasting ruins, You have plucked up and overthrown their cities; the very memory of them has perished and vanished.
But the Master shall remain and continue forever; He has prepared and established His throne for judgment. [Heb_1:11]
And He will judge the world in righteousness (rightness and equity); He will minister justice to the peoples in uprightness. [Act_17:31]
The Master also will be a refuge and a high tower for the oppressed, a refuge and a stronghold in times of trouble (high cost, destitution, and desperation).
And they who know Your name [who have experience and acquaintance with Your mercy] will lean on and confidently put their trust in You, for You, Master, have not forsaken those who seek (inquire of and for) You [on the authority of Your Word and the right of their necessity]. [Psa_42:1]
