I hope you have enjoyed this study as much as I have.
Verse 13 & 14 of Tehillim 27:
יג לוּלֵא--הֶאֱמַנְתִּי, לִרְאוֹת בְּטוּב-יְהוָה: בְּאֶרֶץ חַיִּים
"For except (that) I had been assured to see the Goodness of HaShem;
In the land of the living..."
(note: I think verse 13 is connecting with the previous verse about deliverance from violence. See the last blog)
יד קַוֵּה, אֶל-יְהוָה: חֲזַק, וְיַאֲמֵץ לִבֶּךָ; וְקַוֵּה, אֶל-יְהוָה.
"Endure towards HaShem;
And may your heart be vigorous;
Endure towards HaShem!"
Just as a note: the word: קוה, kaVAH, which I translated "endure" primarily means "wait, hope, be confident, trust". I wanted to enforce the connotation of "eagerly straining forward in watchful waiting", as that is more of the sense that is intended here, I believe.
