Darby's Synopsis of the New Testament

Psalms 27

1:1 seat (a-27) Or 'in the company.'

Verse 1

27:1 afraid? (e-28) 'Fear' and 'be afraid' are nearly the same, but it seems that the latter is more 'terror,' even used of Jehovah. see 1 Samuel 11:7 ; Psalms 36:1 ; 'fear' more in a godly sense, as Proverbs 1:7 , yet ver. 3 here does mean simple 'fear.'

Verse 2

27:2 enemies, (f-7) See Notes, Psalms 8:2 .

Verse 4

27:4 beauty (g-31) Or 'graciousness,' and so in Psalms 90:17 .

Verse 10

27:10 up. (a-15) Or 'For my father and my mother have forsaken me, but Jehovah hath gathered me.'

Verse 11

27:11 enemies. (b-16) Or 'those that lie in wait for me.'

Verse 14

27:14 courage. (c-11) Or 'he will strengthen thy heart.'
