Psalm 27:9 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Hide not thy face - from me - As my face is towards thee wheresoever I am, so let thy face be turned towards me. In a Persian MS. poem entitled Shah we Gudda, "The King and the Beggar," I have found a remarkable couplet, most strangely and artificially involved, which expresses exactly the same sentiment one meaning of which is: -

Our face is towards Thee in all our ways;

Thy face is towards us in all our intentions.

Something similar, though not the same sentiment is in Hafiz, lib. i., gaz. v., cap. 2: -

How can we with the disciples turn our face towards the kaaba,

When our spiritual instructer turns his face to wards the wine-cellar?

I shall subjoin a higher authority than either: -

Ὁτι οφθαλμοι Κυριου επι δικαιους,

Και ωτα αυτου εις δεησις αυτων·

Προσωπον δε Κυριου επι ποιουντας κακα.

March 1. "Wait on the Lord" (Ps. xxvii. 14).
"Wait on the Lord" (Ps. xxvii. 14). How often this is said in the Bible, how little understood! It is what the old monk calls the "practice of the presence of God." It is the habit of prayer. It is the continued communion that not only asks, but receives. People often ask us to pray for them and we have to say, "Why, God has answered our prayer for you, and you must now take the answer. It is awaiting you, and you must take it by waiting on the Lord." This it is that renews the strength, until we

Of the Proving of the True Lover
"My Son, thou art not yet strong and prudent in thy love." 2. Wherefore, O my Lord? 3.

The strong lover standeth fast in temptations, and believeth not the evil persuasions of the enemy. As in prosperity I please him, so in adversity I do not displease. 4. "The prudent lover considereth not the gift of the lover so much as the love of the giver. He looketh for the affection more
