Metaphysically Interpreting Psalms 27:1-14

A Psalm of David.

27:1Jehovah is my light and my salvation;
    Whom shall I fear?
Jehovah is the strength of my life;
    Of whom shall I be afraid?

27:2When evil-doers came upon me
    to eat up my flesh,
Even mine adversaries and my foes,
    they stumbled and fell.

27:3Though a host should encamp against me,
    My heart shall not fear:
Though war should rise against me,
    Even then will I be confident.

27:4One 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 inquire in his temple.

27:5For 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.

27:6And now shall my head be lifted up
    above mine enemies round about me.
And I will offer in his tabernacle
    sacrifices of joy;
I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto Jehovah.

27:7Hear, O Jehovah, when I cry with my voice:
    Have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
27:8When thou saidst, Seek ye my face;
My heart said unto thee,
    Thy face, Jehovah, will I seek.
    27:9Hide 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.
27:10When my father and my mother forsake me,
    Then Jehovah will take me up.

27:11Teach me thy way, O Jehovah;
    And lead me in a plain path,
    Because of mine enemies.
27:12Deliver me not over unto the will of mine adversaries:
    For false witnesses are risen up against me,
    And such as breathe out cruelty.

27:13I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of Jehovah
    In the land of the living.
27:14Wait for Jehovah:
    Be strong, and let thy heart take courage;
    Yea, wait thou for Jehovah.

September 25, 1938: Psalms 27:1-6

What metaphysical interpretation of Jehovah is found in the 27th Psalm? Jehovah is understanding (light) and the deliverance (salvation) that understanding brings to man.

What one thing should we ask of Jehovah? The full realization that we are truly sons of God.
