Study Guide – Psalm 27:11-14

Psalm27-11-14

11 Teach
me your way, Lord;


    lead
me in a straight path


    because
of my oppressors.


12 Do not turn me over
to the desire of my foes,


    for
false witnesses rise up against me,


    spouting
malicious accusations.

13 I
remain confident of this:


    I
will see the goodness of the Lord


    in
the land of the living.


14 Wait for the Lord;


    be
strong and take heart


    and
wait for the Lord.
NIV

 

How does living in honesty protect David from his enemies?

 

 

Despite the false accusations being thrown at him, how is
David able to have confidence?

 

 

What do you think is the hardest part of living out
Psalm 27:14?

 

 

If David didn't want to live in honesty (in v11), how would v14 be even more difficult to practice?
